    Weather app: the maps are displayed in a different language


    Hello all ! My computer's language is English, and I'm currently living in Cyprus for a few months. The thing is, when I use the weather application, and more specifically the "maps" tab, the names on the map are displayed in Greek... (because Greek is Cyprus' language). It's really weird, since the rest of the app is displayed in English... (screenshot below)

    And when I change location, for instance choosing a city in France or in England, the map is still displayed in Greek

    Could anyone help me with this ?
    Sincerely

    Welcome to the Ten Forums Rbourgeon

    Most probably it is because the Region set in Settings app. In my case although living expat life in Germany but as I want as much as possible in Windows to be in English, I have manually set computer location to United Kingdom:
