Wonder if we should get rid of automatic language detection given how often it is inaccurate...

If automatic language detection was removed, we could default posting language to interface language. Would that be accurate in your case? I.e. do you post in the same language as the language of Mastodon's interface you see?


I'm , living in , but my interfaces are almost always set to (mostly because localised interface usually sound awkward...).

While I mostly post in English on , I do occasionally post bi- or tri-lingual toots, or —when it's about a topic only applicable to Dutch or fedifolk— in one of the other two languages.

I would not be opposed to defaulting to your interface language, with per-post option to define which (multiple!) languages it is in.

the list of languages could also put the ones in the Accept Language header at the top.
