No matter what I do evyery title I see is in Italian. I live in Italy but I'm not Italian, indeed my site prefs are site for the UK but nevertheless the site always shows me all titles in the translated italian. I've also deleted the cookies but it makes no difference.

Thanks for reporting this.

It looks like there are problems with the regional settings either not getting picked up or being overridden by the automatically detected ones:

As this has been heavily flagged up, I hope staff are already working on this and, fingers crossed, this will get fixed at the same time.

The same for me. I live in Hungary, and my preferences are set to English titles, but I keep on seeing Hungarian titles and they are completely not understandable for me. Very frustrating.
I see this problem is a year old already.....

Exactly what are your settings?

I recommend setting "Title display country" to "Original". The setting "Title display language" has no effect on its own.

Uhm, no -- that page contains a list of titles grouped by the language spoken in the film. It has nothing to do with selecting a language. The correct response, as above, is to change the "Title Display Country" to "Original" or to whatever location is desired.

I have a very simple and straight-forward solution for IMDB. Please just add a regional settings option on the main page, that anyone can access, if they are members or not, without all this stress. Most major websites that work in different languages allow that. It would be a far superior solution than what IMDB currently offers.
