YouTrack interface suddenly completely in russian ?

Answered

As of today i noticed that the UI on the YouTrack web-interface has seemingly out of nowhere turned to Russian.

Since i do not speak/read russian it makes the UI very hard to use. Is there anyway i can set it back to the English i am used to ?

Hello,

Youtrack.jetbrains.com server accidentally got translated into Russian language. This can be considered an operations issue on our side and we did our best to switch back to English. While switching the language back and forth, we were also translating persistent saved searches people use to subscribe to issue updates. Unfortunately some of these queries got unwanted modifications, hence the strange and unrelated notifications some people got. The latter problem is mostly addressed by now.

We're now reviewing Youtrack.jetbrains.com access scheme to make accidental changes like this one impossible in future. At the same time certain technical measures are taken to make database translation process seamless and robust.

I received an email about an issue in Project IntelliJ IDEA which I am not involved with and a lot of it was in Russian.  Also, I have never signed up for anything related to YouTrack.  I just made this account last week so I could use a license for a different product my company holds.

When I went to the site, it was mostly in Russian.

What is going on?

Looks like Youtrack is still showing in russian on my end ... reloading of pages doesn't seem to help either.

Looks like the maintenance earlier on YouTrack seems to have resolved the Russian UI issue for me ... Everything appearrs to be back in English on my end.
