User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008072820 prism/0.8

When launching either 'prism-google-reader' under ubuntu, or when creating a new webapp with the url reader.google.com, the site starts under swedish translation. 
All menus and items from google are displayed in swedish, although i am accessing the site from germany. 
I cannot find an option to switch the locale information for prism to german or us-english.
Under firefox 3 it all works fine, and I get the either german or english google login screen.

I think Google Reader will default to the language of your locale (guessed from IP address). Can anyone confirm this? Any reason why Google might think you're in Sweden? If you start with a completely fresh Firefox profile, what language comes up when you go to reader.google.com?

Google Reader has been discontinued.
