Make WordPress Core

#51140 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Cookies consent request displayed in German

When my service provider IONOS 1and1 upgraded my managed WordPress site to 5.5, the first thing that happened when I logged in to my wp-admin site was that I got a pop-up demandig that I consent to some cookies. I do not speak German and none of the rest of my displays on wp-admin are in German.
This was unacceptable as I had to try to get the German translated to see what I was supposed to be consenting to.

I'm sorry that you are experiencing difficulties with your site.
Please post your question here: https://wordpress.org/support/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting/
Consent management has not yet been integrated into WordPress Core, so hopefully one of the awesome forum volunteers can help you track down which plugin is causing the issue.
I am closing this ticket for the Core team's workflows, as we cannot help you here for now.

All the best!
