To change your email settings to match your YouTube language settings, just navigate to  your email settings then update your email notification language under Language preference.

Changing the content location on YouTube may also result in unavailability of some videos in your area. To access videos that are not available in your region, you can use a proxy service instead of changing the location on YouTube.

If you’re having trouble changing the location on YouTube, make sure that you’re signed into the correct YouTube account. Clearing the app’s cache and data can also help resolve minor issues like this.
