My Dropbox is in another language which I can't read. I changed my language preference to English yet the dropbox is still in a foreign language.

Thanks, to open the desktop app, click preferences (which should be beneath the first ———— line).

On that page, the middle dropdown box is the languages. Select English and you should be fine!

Could you try quitting the app completely and re-opening it?

Hi there, are you referring to the desktop app, mobile app or the Dropbox site?

I did change the language but it is still not working.  For example, when I do a screenshot the file is saved in another language.
