I can't seem to be able to change the language in which both the Xbox.com and the Xbox Live content is displayed.
What this means is: I'm Portuguese, so the content is displayed in Portuguese (example 1). Now, as much as I love my language, I'd much prefer if the content was displayed in English, especially because the content is so badly translated and in BRAZILIAN (which is NOT Portuguese *kicking myself to avoid writing something that sounds overly xenophobic*). It drives me mad - real mad. Even though I perfectly understand what is written in this example 2, I can't even comprehend what it means in the context of the game.
The same happens with the Xbox Live content (eg: the text about a game's downloadable item in the game's Xbox Live page [Dashboard >> Game Marketplace >> etc.])
I managed to get some of the Xbox UI text in English (eg: "My Xbox", "Connect to Xbox Live", "Party", etc.), but, for instance, "Game Marketplace" appears as "Mercado de Jogos", which, even though is correctly translated, detracts from the expectedly coherent and consistent experience that Microsoft is trying to achieve (Metro and all that).
I realize that the Xbox.com site has a Language link to "Set Your Default Country or Region". I don't know why, but it simply doesn't work. The Forums appear as Canada (English) and I have no idea why. Can't complain, though.
My Account, though, always appears in Portuguese - even if the address is https://live.xbox.com/en-CA/Account (eg: I'm on the Forums and click on "My Account"). It changes from English to Portuguese just like that.
What can I do? I've searched everywhere, spent a huge amount of time searching for the most obscure setting in both my Xbox and the Xbox.com website - all to no avail. The Xbox.com content and the XBL content is completely useless like this. I need English!!!
