Amazon is famous for its huge customer base, which is worldwide, and therefore it isn’t surprising that the service supports several languages. For more convenient use, Amazon keeps track of your region and gives you a specific version of the website, which already has its own language limitations.
For example, if you’re in the U.S., you have only English and Spanish to choose from. If you’re in India, you have Hindi as the default and other local language options. So you can conveniently browse the site and use it to its full capacity. In this article, you will find answers on how to change the language of the site if you suddenly find yourself outside of your home place or purely out of curiosity.
