Netflix is in the wrong language

If your audio, subtitles, or Netflix profile are in the wrong language, or if a preferred language is missing on a TV show or movie, follow the instructions below.

Change your Netflix profile language

On a computer or mobile browser, sign in to Netflix.com.

  1. Select Manage Profiles.

  2. Select your preferred profile.

  3. Select your preferred language.

    • If your preferred language is already selected, select English, then sign out and repeat the steps above.

  4. To save the language setting, return to the device experiencing the issue. Sign out and then sign back in.

Change your subtitle language

Netflix displays the 5-7 languages most relevant to you while streaming. Downloaded titles display the 2 languages most relevant to you.

If your preferred subtitle language isn't listed as an option:

  1. On a computer or mobile browser, sign in to Netflix.com.

  2. Select Manage Profiles.

  3. Select your preferred profile.

  4. Select your preferred subtitle language.

  5. Try to play the TV show or movie with your preferred subtitles again.

If your title still doesn’t display the correct subtitles, see Why aren't subtitles available in my language? If you have to reset your subtitles every time you try to watch, play a title with a maturity rating of Teens or above set to your preferred subtitle language. This will save your settings for future viewing.
