Will I be able to make changes to my preferences after my initial choice? If so, how?
Yes, you will be able to change your news language preference at any time. Just go to the settings in the client, head to the "general" tab and select your "news language" from the drop down menu.
Will other tabs in the client also change to the selected "news language"? Will my client's entire language change to the "news language"?
The only tabs affected by this will be the Overview and News tab in the client - so if your game is installed in English, the rest of your client will remain in English.
What does the "automatic" option do?
With this option, the client will automatically change the language of the Overview and News tabs based on your geo-location. If you play the game from Germany (even if you have the game in English), you will see your news articles in German.
Are you going to be storing my location?
We are not storing your private data and location. When you launch the client, the servers only locate the area from which you are connecting to our servers, and this is how the "automatic" option will determine which language your Overview and News tabs will be in.
How will this affect me if I'm using a VPN?
Your news language will be targeted based on your VPN location.
Can I change the language of the whole client to "French" but keep only the game itself in English?
No, this new option only changes the languages of the articles that you see in the Overview and News sections in the client. There is no plan at the moment to have the option to change the language of the whole client and set a different in-game language.
If I change the language or region on the launcher, will it affect the "news language" that I have selected?
Changing the language selection on the launcher won't affect your "news" language - the choice you make is saved in your profile (as long as the "news language" is available on the server you choose).
Can I choose to receive the news in a language from a different server?
No. At the moment there is no plan to provide news articles in a language that is not supported by a specific server. For example, you won't be able to choose to read your news in German if you are playing on the EUNE servers.
Will I get different articles than the English ones?
You will still be getting the same articles related to the game (new champions, skins,...) but there will be country specific articles that will only show in selected languages.
Why can't I see my specific language in the "news language" option?
As of right now, these are the languages that we officially support:
EUW: English, French, Spanish, Italian, German
EUNE: English, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, Polish, Czech
