Safari on Mac


There is no option to change the language/locale in Safari on a Macintosh computer. To change the locale you have to change the locale of the entire computer. This is not recommended because it will be difficult to change the locale for your computer back to its original locale because everything will be displayed in a different language! If you need to use a different locale, you would probably be better served by downloading a copy of Firefox.
