Setting the default language for your site helps search engines determine what is relevant to users and provides visitors using a screen reader with an accurate reading and tone. This allows your site to be compliant with ADA regulations and provides the same experience to all users interested in your content. Please note that this is just for the text that you will be writing your content in, and it will not change the default text of the editor.
