That would make sense. The links probably have the language in the url. If you click the FR or DE buttons at the top of the page, you can see the url adds /fr or /de after the swtor.com. This sets the language for the page layout. As mentioned, clicking the EN link will set it back to English.

Here's one example:

1. Google "swtor lightside appearance"

2. Click on the thread "Any plans for light side appearance changes?"

3. Your page is now in German.

Hmm.. came up english for me...

However, I have also experienced the forums trying to insist I speak (or read) a different language.

It's happened infrequently, for a long time.. maybe as long as I've been playing (April?), but it seems to happen mostly after I've attempted to visit the forums downtime (patch day).

It has happened more frequently, and more randomly recently, and not always when clicking in from Google. I have a bunch of bookmarks to forum posts here, and I've had those come up with German as well.

Sometimes clicking the "EN" button works.. but it usually takes several tries before it 'sticks'.

Most of this is just circumstantial hindsight observation. If it happens again, I'll pay more attention to specifics and come back here and post...

yeah I can see this being a dozen different things as to why it happens. Google is one complex beast. Could be something to do with their redirect system. In fact I'd more than bet on it. Don't think this is a problem with the forum itself. Sometimes google's redirects go kind of funky and I've seen that happen with non-swtor sites as well, albeit really rare to see it, at least for me, but I have had it happen a couple times coming in from google as well.

This happens for me from time to time. Clicking the 'EN' button up top fixes it, it's just odd that DE would show up.

I've found it to be a browser issue (it usually happens to me when clicking an external link via search that contains '/fr' or '/de' in the link). Simply clear your cache, history, cookies, etc. and reload the EN page.

On a side note: A solution to this for those signed into their account would be to tie it into one's account preferences.

It's completely random. Just every once in awhile I come to the site and it will switch to French for me for some odd reason.
