Fix an iTunes Store incorrect language setting Apps
This is a pretty lame hint, but it drove me nuts until I found the solution. If you travel, your iTunes app may suddenly decide that your correct iTunes Store is located in, say, Bangladesh. All of the text and instructions evident on the iTunes page are then written in Yugoslavian, and there's no fix other than this:

Scroll the iTunes page down to its very bottom. You will see a drop-down box in the extreme lower right of the window. You will not be able to see what that dropdown does, because its label is written in Swahili. But drop it down anyway, and you get to choose your store (and language).

This info is actually in iTunes Help, but it's way at the bottom, after some stuff that looks like the end of the help text. Grrrrr.

Or you could just choose to sign in or try to make a purchase, in which case iTunes will automatically transfer you to the correct store.

It's interesting that if iTunes thinks you are in Bangladesh, it would then show you the interface in Yugoslavian. There are at least two bugs with this:

  1. Not many people speak "Yugoslavian" in Bangladesh so why would iTunes do this?
  2. I don't know of a language called "Yugoslavian" so how could iTunes show it?

It seems to me you found at least two bugs and should file them with Apple.... Very odd

The poster's comedy writing may not be quite ready for prime time, but I'm pretty sure s/he was being facetious about the mismatched locations/languages (Bangladesh, "Yugoslavian," Swahili) mentioned in the hint. The point seems to be that all languages you can't read are equivalent and equally useless (to you).
