Don't see questions anymore

When I logged in this morning I had to recover my access via a mail. This worked fine but:

  • Now I got a Japanese language interface under This is so far OK for me but not all foreigners living in Japan can read what is written on this page in Japanese. The equivalent is valid for other countires as well.
  • When I click ALL, UNANSWERED, FOLLOWED questions, I don’t get a list


  • Is there a hidden button to change interface languages?
  • How can I see the questions again? (Here I am even afraid that I neither see this question nor the answer!)

An answer is NOW possible by myself.

When I submitted the question I selected as language English. Results are: I see my and other questions and the GUI is English again.

It seems that only for the first logging after being kicked out - by whatever the reason is - the GUI is the language of the country selected in the profile. In my case the country is Japan.

Hope this helps now some other living not in their native countries.


@manj_k - Thanks for you list, which indicates/confirms that the way to access AskLibO again is stable.

After I posted the answer to my question and left AskLibO temporarily I could not go back in again without asking a question. I came back here by fiddling in the URL and replaced /ja/ by /en/.

I think it is nice to have AskLibO (and also other pages) opening in the local language. This shows respect to other countries. However in a global world, where more and more people live in countries, where they don(t speak the language fully, we also need easy switches to other languages. I am looking foreward to see the development of LibO from Japan.

The following (independent) AskBot localizations have been set up:

العَرَبِيَّة‎‎ - Ask LibreOffice

Hrvatski - Ask LibreOffice

Italiano - Ask LibreOffice

日本語 - Ask LibreOffice

Português do Brasil - Ask LibreOffice

Română - Ask LibreOffice

You can easily change the localization in the address bar of your browser:

Thanks @manj_k - See the EDIT in my answer.
