How does the language settings in the Xbox 360 work.

I have set the "Console Settings" > "Language/Locale" to "English/Sweden" and all the words in the settings menu are in English. But as soon as I go to the Dashboard everything is in Swedish.

Is there a separate language settings for the Dashboard, or is it a bug in the system?

I am using the new fancy dashboard.

Have you tried changing your Xbox Live account's language? Here are the steps (from Xbox Support):

  1. Go to Billing Account Information
  2. Sign in using your Microsoft account (this is the e-mail/password tied to your Gamertag)
  3. If multiple languages are supported for your country or region, select a language from Preferred Language. Note The Preferred Language option does not appear if only one language is supported (for example, the United States).
  4. Click Save.

Hi. Thanks for the answer. Didn't work. There was no Preferred Language option in the Billing Account Information page. – Jonas Söderström Dec 22 '12 at 16:57
@JonasSöderström Well, was worth a try. Not sure what else to suggest off hand. :( – Adeese Dec 22 '12 at 21:44
