Hi @Christian Kai 
I hope you are well.

According to Choosing a Default Language , the language preference is ruled by the following configuration:

The language used for your session will depend on the settings below, in the following order of priority from highest to lowest:

  • The language preference defined in your user profile. Note that you need to be logged in for this setting to take effect.
  • The language that you choose by clicking an option at the bottom of the Confluence login screen. Confluence stores this value in a cookie. When the cookie expires, the setting will expire too. 
  • The language set in your browser. The browser sends a header with a prioritized list of languages. Confluence will use the first supported language in that list. Confluence administrators can disable this option by setting the confluence.browser.language.enabled system property to false.
  • The default language for your site, as defined by your Confluence site administrator.


Make sure the two options above are not associated to your profile before testing the system property.

The full entry in should look like the below.

CATALINA_OPTS="-Dconfluence.browser.language.enabled=false ${CATALINA_OPTS}"

How's it configured in your instance?

I hope that helps.

Kind regards,
Thiago Masutti

I don't have the "-D" before the entry confluence, i will test and tell you if is okay.


Thank you

Ok, it seems to be good with "-D", you should update the documentation with this.


Thank you
