So, I have my browser in swedish but I want the app itself(adblock) to be in english. I can't seem to find a way to change it in the options.

Is there a way?

    Hi Steven,

    AdBlock takes its interface language from the language set in your browser. Setting AdBlock's language independently is something that has been requested in the past, and we are looking into it. For now, you can delete the Swedish translation from AdBlock if you'd like it to use English without changing your browser's language.

    The following folder contains all of your installed Chrome extensions:

    C:\Users\*UserName*\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions

    AdBlock will be in the subfolder that's named the same as the extension ID in chrome://extensions (gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom). The version number should start with 2.42. Once you've found it, go into the _locales folder, and delete the folder called sv.

    Please let us know if you run into trouble!
