Something not quite right here, the default is English if it can't find your language via your browser that is but it's obviously having problems.  :blink:

OK, thanks for your help guys, I'll pass the results on.

I'm from Poland, and I get German/Deutsch. Checked in Opera and Chrome, before and after deleting paypal/glbasic site cookies.
What more interesting, once, after login to paypal account and logout I have got that checkout page in Polisch, but next time again it was in German :D and still it is..

There is 'lc' parameter for setting user language:
Quote from: PayPal
The locale of the login or sign-up page, which may have the specific country's language available, depending on localization. If unspecified, PayPal determines the locale by using a cookie in the subscriber’s browser. If there is no PayPal cookie, the default locale is US.
but it isn't set on glBasic site so everyone should get his default language or at least US English.
Strange problem..

Maybe you should force some lc with info gathered from php user-agent or something like this..

I'm also getting German when trying to buy GLB via PayPal. I'm the UK and have tried both IE and FireFox.

Doesn't matter - installed Chrome and used that to translate the page into English :)

Gernot hasn't been able to find out why it's been happening - I did some tests with him ages ago, but we weren't able to find out the cause.  I think its buried deep in some setup somewhere...

You can change the language text by selecting Großbritannien in Land/Country selection.

Fixed now?
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="en" />

Does it work?

No difference I'm afraid - just tried it with IE and FF, and hit shift-refresh to ensure I didn't have a cached copy of the page.

"Sie haben bereits ein PayPal-Konto" on my end too hehe.

I would not worry for that issue too much though... ;)
