I am in the UK, but for some reason my pinned link to this community site opened with German as the language. I changed it back for a session, but when I later returned to start another session, it was back to German!
Gott in Himmel!

Lieber Herr Reichardtz,
Consider yourself somewhat lucky -- it could have been Yiddish, instead.
I have experienced similar issues in the recent past at this site; in my case the languages were Russian and Chinese, and the aberrations lasted only a few hours.
Apparently, web sites can come under the sway of Foreign Speech Syndrome .
