Create page stuck in Chinese!

I work in IT at a primary school and we have 100+ Chromebooks used by the pupils. When one pupil goes to the scratch website on any of these Chromebooks, the create page is in Chinese. I am able to click on the globe icon in the top left and change the language to English but as soon as I navigate to a different page on the site it changes the language back to Chinese.

This mainly affects the create page but some other pages on the scratch site are partly in Chinese and partly English. This problem is not affecting any other pupils and is not happening on any other websites. I have checked the settings in Chrome and no languages are set to anything other than English, Help!

Forgot to add some information.

The problem has been happening for around 2 weeks, we thought we had sorted it out by changing the language settings but the issue still continues. The pupil in question first noticed the problem and notified a member of staff.

Huh! You say this is happening on the Create page? I suggest that you use the offline editor instead of the online editor for now - it still allows uploading projects, don't worry.

Keep in mind what a Wiki Wednesday article should include. A few days before Wiki Wednesday, all suggestions will be taken into consideration and one will be submitted to the Scratch Team for review. Don't worry, we look at each suggestion equally - no article is favored over another.

SOLVED!

Thanks for your replies, the problem ended up being with the Chromebook settings, I will briefly detail what the problem was in case it happens to anyone else.

The Chromebook's language setting listed the current languages as English (United Kingdom) and English. For some reason having two languages in the list (even though they were both English) made parts of the Scratch site display in Chinese/Mandarin(?). I had noticed the second English before but thought nothing of it. Only after removing it as a last resort did the problem resolve itself, the site now displays in the correct language.

Okay, great. Now that this has been resolved, I'll report it to be closed.
