Changing language of app?

After getting fed up of the recent issues with Podcast Addict, I’ve downloaded AntennaPod (now, to re-download several thousand episodes…).

The app is in Dutch, probably because I’m in the Netherlands.
However, I would very much prefer to have it in English; that would make searching for features, solutions etc so much easier!

I’ve poked around in the app settings and here on tne forum, but I can’t find anything; is there a way to change the app language to English?

Hi and welcome to the forum. The app uses the language that your phone is set to. There is no option to change this.

Ok, I can toggle that.
Thank you!

Shouldn’t this be something relatively easy to implement? Many other apps have this feature.

Android does not have a “clean” way to make a language toggle. The system is meant to be used in a consistent language instead of having each app in its own language. While it is possible to add a toggle, one always needs to work around the system, which has the potential of creating a whole lot of issues.

Okay, that makes sense. As a non-developer, I didn’t know and was curious. I was looking at another app on my phone yesterday, with a much simpler interface than AP, and noticed in the settings there was a language toggle. So I didn’t know how complex it was.
