Why does the search term disappear and check mark come back just because you change the language?

Asked by flo (12974points) November 6th, 2014

Why would such a thing happen, since the search term is mostly a name, which is mostly the same in all the languages?
In Gmail’s for example if “stay signed in” gets turned off, why would the act of changing the language option turn it back on?

Servers generally only operate effectively with 1 language per user at the same time. It makes the code easier. Although you may just have invented a really cool website! I wouldn’t try to create it though. At least not without a feasibility study into bilingual users or something that way. Sounds like a pain. Anyway, in answer to your question…

Never question a geeks coding format. Just… walk away.

Most websites are templates. Especially smaller ones. Web designers buy code to make things work for certain redundant items. Languages are recognized one at a time. It’s just the way it is.
