How to restrict a Google search to results of a specific language?


You can do that using the advanced search options: http://www.googleguide.com/sharpening_queries.html

I also found this, which might work for you: http://www.searchenginejournal.com/how-to-see-google-search-results-for-other-locations/25203/

Just wanted to add a more comprehensive answer about language parameters in Google Search.

There are 4 language-related options.

1. Web interface language: hl=

Example: www.google.com/search?q=vilnius&hl=lt

2. Pages in specified language: lr=lang_

Example: www.google.com/search?q=vilnius&lr=lang_lt

3. Pages originating from specified country: cr=country

Example: www.google.com/search?q=vilnius&cr=countryLT
Note that the two country code characters have to be in UPPERCASE ! Otherwise Google ignores the parameter (as of 2017-01-03) (even though lower case works fine for hl= and lr=lang_).

There is another parameter – gl= – for search results as they would appear in specified country. I tried testing it, but for me results were not differing for different parameter values. Maybe that’s obsolete or overwritten by some other paremeters/settings of browser or my Google account.
