Is there any way to change the site language permanently?

    Every time I have to visit the site I'm presented with a page in Portuguese by default. And since I'm always keeping a secondary up-to-date Unity installation to check the news, this happens very often. The enforced language setting is pointless because the actual patch notes aren't translated, and even even if they were I'd prefer to read the resources in plain English since that's the language in which most of the Unity content is written. On top of that the pages are written in European Portuguese, not Brazilian Portuguese, filled with terms I'm not familiar. Needless to say I am not exactly happy with being IP-locked to a language.

    So I change the language to English and the cookies stick for a day or two before reverting to Portuguese. This is the only site wherein this happens - I don't have this issue with any other site with a language option.

    It's profoundly annoying. I'm using the latest version of Chrome. This has been going on for a year or so.

    At the bottom right of the webpage, there should be drop down selector for the language. Hope that helps @Lukis.

    I live in Singapore and no matter how often I change the site to English, the next day I come back and it defaults to Chinese again.

    Super-annoying!

    A work around I found is to install ModHeader extension and enter these settings (pic + text for copy/paste):
    Accept-Language
    en-US;q=0.7,en;q=0.6

    This forces all sites to english.
