Not sure if this is the right forum, but anyway...

 

I don't use Office Online very often, but just went to do so earlier and it appears that somehow my default display is set to Chinese language. Have checked my Microsoft account settings and location is definitely NZ. Also email and calendar are displaying just fine, it's just the Office Online apps that seem to be affected. Tried two different browsers, but same issue. A Google search was no help.

 

Anyone have any idea if this is a separate user controlled setting somewhere?

Just so this doesn't sit here unanswered - it was obviously an issue with the Office Online environment. Everything displaying normally today and no changes at my end.

We use Skype at work and interestingly when I click the "Join Online" button in Outlook it flashes up in what appears to be Chinese before switching to English. It seems odd that Microsoft would use Chinese as the default language, but I guess it's a possibility.
