Masterpass.com - French Only?????

I just notice when I go to https://www.masterpass.com/ It is French only, there is no option to change to English.

So seem like all they want is business from Quebec and don't care for the rest of Canada.

Must be a bug on the site which defaults to the french translation. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to select your language and region:

wow, all the way in the bottom. Most site have selection right on the top.
Plus, for my case, the word "English" is in FRENCH!!!!!

May be the webadmin is from Quebec and think it is all about Quebec?

Chill out, man. This is something French Canadians have to live with every day. Heck, just look at RFD. No French on the entire site.

How would that even work anyways since 99.9% of the stuff here is user generated.

Francophone Users would post en français
Anglophone Users would post in English

Not that usual for those of us who have lived in parts of Canada that are truly bilingual

Have seen it often on Work or School websites / forums

Those users who are bilingual ... get to benefit from all the posts / discussions

Side note: I'm actually surprised there aren't more french posts here.
I think I see maybe one a month if that.

Other websites that endeavor to have a national presence in Canada usually make some attempt at having French on their site, with varying degrees of success. But not RFD. There’s no Français button anywhere to switch the menus and other admin-generated content to French. There isn’t even a French-specific user forum. The RFD admins make no effort at all, so they get a big fat zero. "We don't care about you" is the message that French Canadians get when visiting RFD. So it’s no surprise that French language activity on RFD would be so sparse.
