Tutorial: How to change Brave Browser language to Portuguese in Ubuntu 20.04

Setting up Brave Browser to start with Portuguese (pt-BR) Language on Ubuntu 20.04

In this tutorial, we will configure Brave Browser to start with Portuguese language from Brazil (pt-BR) on Ubuntu 20.04 system. To do this, we will create a custom startup file for Brave Browser.

Step 1: Open a Terminal

Open a terminal on your Ubuntu 20.04 system. You can do this by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or searching for “Terminal” in the applications menu.

Step 2: Create a Custom Startup File

Execute the following command to create a custom startup file for Brave Browser:

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications/
nano ~/.local/share/applications/brave-browser.desktop

This will create a hidden folder called .local in your user directory and, within it, a folder called share/applications. Then, it will open the brave-browser.desktop file in the “nano” text editor.

Step 3: Paste the Content into the File

In the nano text editor, paste the following content into the brave-browser.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Brave Browser
GenericName=Web Browser
Comment=Fast, private, and secure web browser by Brave Software
Exec=env LANGUAGE=pt_BR.UTF-8 /usr/bin/brave-browser-stable %U

Step 4: Save and Exit Editor

Press Ctrl + O to save the file and then press Enter. Then, press Ctrl + X to exit the nano editor.

Step 5: Restart Brave Browser

Now, close all running instances of Brave Browser and start the browser again.

Step 6: Check Language

Brave Browser should start with the language set to Brazilian Portuguese (pt-BR). To check, open the Brave settings and check the language in the language and region settings.

You have successfully configured Brave Browser to start with Portuguese (pt-BR) language in Ubuntu 20.04. This will let you browse the web with the Brave interface in pt-BR.
