This seems like a bug to me, but I'm just checking if we've overlooked something obvious. A user clicked the 'Deutsch' link on the login screen and Confluence happily changes to German - login screen, menus etc. That's fine. But there's no (obvious) way to switch back to English.
(We have a workaround - if you clear browser cookies, the German language setting goes away and English comes, but that's like thowing a hand grenade at the problem to fix it; there can be a lot of collateral damage and users don't like it.)
Shouldn't there be an "English" link on the login page to make it easy to switch back? This is Confluence v5.7.1
Thank you. It's actually http://<yourdomain>/users/editmysettings.action. It's the second field (in German labelled "Sprache"). There's a dropdown to select your new language. However, that doesn't change the oddity of having a single link on the login page that allows you to switch to German with no easy option for switching back. It's sloppy coding at best.
