How to change the language?

Hi everyone!

First off, I was looking for a section called "internet" here in this lovely forum, but I didn't find it. It used to exist though if I am not mistaken, but whatever...

I have a simple question, but still I can't figure out what to do.

My YouTube displays the user agreement in the local language of the country I am in, even though my settings are that Language is English and location is GB.
There seems to be no way visible to me to do that on my laptop.
The settings of my Google account are right, as I checked before. But feel free to remind me of something you believe I might have missed.

Note: Chrome translates this automatically - I know. But I really would like to set my laptop itself to understand that wherever I am or go to, the language of the content of the websites I visit should be in English only, given the website views in multiple languages, depending on the geographical location. Otherwise, I don't mean to have the texts inside changed to English if it was, say, a French news website.
But there are websites like Yahoo Mail, MSN, and such websites which display their content in the local language of the country it was visited from, and that really teases me, even though I can have the website translated (sometimes).

Hope to get your kind answers soon!

Thanks.

Any chance someone of you, guys, knows a fix for this problem?

Say, if I am in France, how to prevent the Yahoo Mail website to view its content (the user name and password and a short text) in French?

Or if I am in Poland, how to prevent the Gmail website from viewing its content in Polish?

I would like to have everything unified in English, regardless of where I am or where I go.

Any way to make my computer understand this and not change it?
