Description (last modified by Antonin Grêlé)

Hello,

My language settings are "English" for google products, and search results in both "English" and "French". See here : https://i.imgur.com/LjbSSCJ.png

When I make Django-related queries in the Google search engine, I receive search results such as this one :

Note that the displayed URL is "/en/" though the title and description are in French. I'm expecting to get the results in English.

don't know if this is an issue on the Django docs side, or on how Google handles canonical urls. However, the "/en/" page definitely does not contain any words of French in its source.
