Description

"As a side note, that page always loads in my native language with no way to switch to English -- pages which do this are the worst. In this case it means I can't usefully copy-paste you the exact error messages that I get."

Ticket #9678 also proposed a language switcher. The ticket was closed because the work it would have taken to implement this wasn't worth the minor usability benefit we would get out of this. BridgeDB does support a lang argument that allows for language switching, e.g., bridges.torproject.org?lang=de. We may be able to build this feature around this argument.
