I'm registered with a swedish address because I reside in Sweden, but I do not speak Swedish. In my Adobe Account I chose English as my first language and Portuguese as my second language, but when I go to Adobe Stock and click in "Sell", imediattely everything turns into Swedish. How can I change the language settings in adobe stock contributor page?

Thank you very much Jill!
It's a bummer that the only way to change the language is by changing the region, but it seems like it's the only possibility.
Yes, it seems to be a long-standing complaint / issue which Adobe hasn't addressed yet...
I have the same "problem". It's even very weird, as my region allows for 3 languages to be selected. It always falls back to the same language, which I speak, but do not prefer. You even can get people angry with that in countries where you have open language disputes, like in Belgium.
I have been following this issue for years. and it goes to worst. Can adobe be serious about this single issue that bugging so many of your users?
firstly, it should be easy for an icon rather than in assumption of the region should be an assumed language the whole entire region will be using. For example, I am living in Hong Kong, but not all are reading Chinese. In the region selection, Hong Kong is only listed in Chinese, and who on earth will be knowing that is refering to Hong Kong in only Chinese, if you do not read the language?
2. If you would like to use English, of which is a legal language in Hong Kong, and there is not selection on that, so I have to switch to Australia in order to use English.
What kind of logic is that?
3. As so many of your users responded for years that it will switch language when we log out, and even selected preferred language, and it just keep switching to 'Adobe preferred' language. This is shameful to have this type of services, just image that every time you need to guess the language that you do not read and to reset the language that you can understand, even the locals here will not do that to those can't read and write Chinese.
It is indeed a strange logic to associate a language to a region. Especially, that Adobe solves the only real problem that could arise from that selection: regional prices of the products. For me, the Language and the Region you live in need to be decoupled. I can well live in Brazil, but preferring the websites/programs language in Bulgarian.
It's nice that Adobe offers so many languages, most companies, also international ones, don't do. And it is a lot of work to maintain all those local language versions, even that mechanical translation has improved over the time. But indeed, there is not a real relation to the language you use and the region you live in.
