How to stop YouTube from translating video titles?

With an ever-expanding audience, Youtube always tries to make things easier for its users. However, at times too much help can be troublesome. In this article, we’re going over four ways to stop Youtube from translating video titles. 


Disable any VPNs

If you’re using a VPN, chances are the Youtube site is thinking you’re in another country or region and is using the localised language for that place. Try disabling any VPNs that you’re using and try refreshing the site once. 


Check your country

Youtube’s native country setting is one of the major causes why the platform tries to translate video titles. Changing your country can help resolve this issue.
