It seems the store app will only search in my local language. When an app happens to have a german translation, and I search for its english title, it is not found! Can I change this without changing the phone language (or country or whatnot)?

  • The phone language is german. (I bought in in germany)
  • The MS account language is also german (or so I assume, since all options I set there are german.)

    Can you edit the question providing you Microsoft account language and your phone language+region options? Jul 6 '13 at 1:04
  • If your phone set to German? Is your Microsoft account set up as German?

  • @MartinBa what is you se the Country of your phone to the United States? Under Settings. Jun 17 '14 at 22:22
  • @Mikael - the whole point of the question is to search for english apps without messing with the phone settings

One solution is to visit the U.S. Store via a browser.

Another way is to download a third-party Store browser like WPstore.
