My page show up with Islenska language and I want to change it back to English

My page has recently showing Islenska (icelandic) language as the default format.  I wanted to change it back to English but I could find the cog icon (per the instruction below).  


Where can I find the cog icon.  I am not an admin.



Setting the default language

To change the default language for the Confluence site:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration
  2. Select 'Languages' in the 'Configuration' section of the left-hand panel.
  3. Choose Edit and select the language you want to use as the default language for your Confluence site.


Confluence comes with the following languages installed and ready to use:


  • Čeština (Česká republika | Czech Republic)
  • Dansk (Danmark | Denmark)
  • Deutsch (Deutschland | Germany)
  • Eesti (Eesti | Estonia)
  • English (UK)
  • English (US)

Hi @Shaun Chooi welcome to the Atlassian community and confluence group.

Please be informed, an end user can choose the language that "Confluence will use" to display screen text and messages. Which means, you would need to check with your organization Confluence admin to update/ change the language settings.
