I just got an iPad Air 4 and installed the Dropbox mobile app on it. To my surprise the app is completely in Italian even though my device is in Finnish. How do I fix this? On all my other devices Dropbox is in English.

I will answer this myself since I managed to fix this. The interface of my iPad is in Finnish, but I found that under Settings > General > Language & Region there were multiple languages selected as primary languages. Finnish was assigned as the language of my iPad but there were also Italian, French and Swedish. I hadn't selected these myself, so I have no idea why they were there. After removing all languages other than Finnish my apps now use either Finnish or English.

 

Also, different apps seem to choose a language at random from those set as primary languages. I had Dropbox in Italian and another app (Ultimate Ears) in French.
