Hey I noticed Greek has finally been added to the list of interface languages. I don't know any Greek but just for fun I want to change my interface language to that. For some reason though, selecting it (and pressing the "submit" button) doesn't switch the interface to that language. In the past the only way I've been able to successfully do it is by manually typing in the domain country code or domain language code and the only one I know for Greek is .gr but that doesn't work.

Thank you for your interest. I've checked and the interface language change is working for me. Empty your browser's cache then try again, try also different interface languages and maybe you can download a mobile browser and check if it also has the same problem.
The language doesn't change by changing the domain suffix.

For me, changing the domain suffix changes the language.

But I also often have the problem that the page language changes randomly (most often to French or a Slavic language), and I only change it back by changing the url. I didn't use the "normal" way of changing it in at least the last 12 months xD It didn't work back then at all so I didn't use it anymore.

@Sciera: Is there a possibility (if you're using a note/netbook) that you're unintentionally touching the touchpad or something?

I use a notebook but no, that's not the reason. I'll just explain how a language change normally happens:
I most often notice a change of the page language when I open the website via a link from an email (when I get notifications of content I subscribed to). And sometimes the language is also changed as soon as I open lyricstranslate.com. The language doesn't simply change while browsing.

Thank you, I've notified the admins to look into it. Can you state the browsers, browser addons and OS you're using along with versions?

@Sciera
That issue you're having where the language changes randomly happens to me too when I open an a link from an email. (usually about a pm) I always assumed it had to do that the language that the sender is set to.

@eyfokas
Changing the suffix does work for me but what's the suffix for Greek? I know it's not "gr" Changing the suffix is the only thing that works for me.

The suffix for Greece is indeed .gr but first you must register the domain which costs money

Which "submit" button do you mean? There's no any in "Select your language" drop-down.

Actually, site language interface can be changed by changing an URL.

For example, notice the '/en/' part in http://lyricstranslate.com/en/language/italian. If you change that to '/es/', or '/it/', or '/fr/', or other supported language code, you'll be switched to another language interface. This is what language switcher drop-down does for you.

What? I have to spend money to see the Greek interface? That's not the case with Italian or Russian. Why?

Not you but the site surely has to pay money to register a domain

/el/ does it (originating from hellenic)

There're links, but I can't see [Submit] button. Could you maybe send a screenshot?
