Hi @DKRacing , sorry to hear this. Have you been able to get your store back as you'd like? Changing the default language in Languages > Settings does not swap the default language, it changes the locale associated with the content you have entered in to admin. E.g. I upload a product in English, then change the default language to French - the content I've written is still in English but the system now thinks that text is French.
