How can I bookmark Google Advanced Search in different languages?

Tanja October 29, 2012

In my old, busted laptop I had GAS (Google Advanced Search) on my bookmarks bar in English, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Finnish (I’m a translator).

Now, with this new, fancy laptop, I’m unable to get away from the cursed Finnish language GAS. I tried the tricks I found in a Q&A from last year – no luck. Whatever I write in the address bar, be it .se, .no, .com, Google always decides that it’s best for me to stick to the Finnish language GAS.

I would really appreciate help with this, thank you in advance!

    Wonderful! Thank you very very much for your answers. Manuel, your tip worked and now I have my lovely line of five different language googles on my bookmark bar. So happy!

    manually type in or or whichever search you want, then right click in the searchbar (in the page not the omnibar) and select add as search engine.
    Then you can give it a special keyword shortcut.

    And whenever you want to search using that engine just type the keyword in the omnibar and then whatever it is you're searching.

      Yes, this is the best. Just bookmark these addresses and log out from any google service you might logged into.

    Have you try not to login with your google account?
    Try to lock out from all the google you use.

    Ok, this is what I found.
    Start by searching anyhing, then go to advanced search by clicking in the cog icon to the right. That'll take you to a default advanced search page, with an URL like this:
    There, the last two letters (after 'hl=') indicate the language. It will be 'en' for English, 'sv' for Swedish, 'da' for Danish, 'no' for Norwegian and 'fi' for Finnish.
    So, for example, the URL for the Swedish search would be:
    If you want to check the code of a particular language, start by going to the following site:
    In the top option, where it says "Which language should Google products use? ", select the language you want to check. That will change your Google language. Then, go to "Advanced search" in that language to check the code. It will be the second option inside the cog icon. The language code always is located after 'hl=' in the URL.
