Whether you are interested in keeping up with news from your native land or checking in on events in a country you plan to visit, Microsoft News has you covered. Available in 140 countries in 28 languages, our global network of over 800 journalists and editors gives you access to content from more than 4,500 trusted publications from around the world.
As a new user, we determine the appropriate language and Web site to display for you, using your location and the language of your operating system. For example, if we detect that you are in the United States and your device “speaks English,” then you will see a content experience that has been designed specifically for our readers in the United States. If, on the other hand, we conclude that you are in Canada and your device “speaks French,” then you will be shown the French Canadian news experience.
Most users never encounter a prompt to manually choose language and regions unless you travel internationally or change your system configuration. If you are interested in reading news from a different country, you may want to try the following.
Find the Settings icon:
- On your browser, you can typically find Settings in the upper right corner of your page.
- In applications, you’ll find Settings at the bottom of your screen.
When you click on the Settings icon, a window will open that allows you to change the configuration of your program. Look for the Change language and content option and select a new language and content combination.
Note that Microsoft News remembers your language and content choices. If you would like to go back to your original experience, please repeat the process and select the combination of language and content of your preference.
In the future, look for updates that will make it possible for you to see content from multiple countries at the same time. This content will be presented in your native language or localized using machine translation technology.
We hope that you find these tips useful. If there are other language-related features that you’d like to see, please let us know. We love hearing from you and continually strive to improve your daily experience on Microsoft News.
