Hello @agooshi,

Welcome to WordPress Core Trac!

I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing issues after updating to WordPress 5.8. WordPress Core does not have a language specific option built into widgets. This feature is likely added in a plugin or your current theme.

You'll need to reach out directly to the plugin's or theme's author for support. If you're still not sure how to determine which plugins are causing the issues, please open an issue on the support forums. There is also a list of helpful found in this post.

As a temporary workaround until the plugin/theme author fixes the problem, you could also use the Classic Widget plugin to restore the pre-5.8 widgets screen. Then when the plugin or theme is fixed, you can deactivate and remove it to use the new 5.8 block widgets.

Ok, thank you for reply. But it's a pity that wordpress changes something that worked well without giving us a choice...

I'm sorry that change came as a surprise. There were a lot of notices and information flowing through various mediums such as Twitter, Make Blog, and WP media outlets. But these don't also reach everyone.

There was a discussion about this today in Core Dev Chat in Making WordPress slack #core channel. This is an area to improve and something being actively worked on.
