Chrome settings in spanish

I don't know why, once my chrome settings changed to some unknown language. Well, actually I was fiddling with the settings as chrome was not displaying text in hindi.. Maybe I had uninstalled something and then I had a problem, after making some changes all the menu started appearing in boxes.. so I could hardly do anything. Then I had an idea, I opened IE and then saw how to change the settings in chrome and then instead of reverting back to English, I put the languages settings to spanish. This was one way for me to learn some new spanish words. So just have a look at this..
The first word is back - Atras, then cargar de nuevo - reload, guardar como.. - save as. imprimir - print, traducir a espanol - translate to spanish, ver codigo fuente de pagina - view the code for the page, ver informaction de la pagina - view info for the page, inspeccionar elemento - inspect elements.. 

First one is abrir - open , enlace - link en una pestana nueva - open link in a new tab. abrir enlace en una ventana nueva - open link in a new window. abrir el enlace en una ventana de navegacion de incognito - open link in a incognito window, guardar enlace como - save link as, copiar direccion de enlace - copy url of link... etc
so other words esperando - waiting, solicitud - request etc etc..
So my spanish journey continues with the browser settings in spanish language.. so now I know for certain abrir is to open and esperando is waiting..
Also, the fact remains, still I am not able to view hindi font in chrome.. any suggestions??

Flash card from a book - flash card number 20

Flash card from a book - flash card number 20
He(I have) - trabajado mucho. - I have worked much
He(I have) - estudiado mucho. - I have studied much
?(read it as reverse question mark.. in spanish a question always starts with an inverted question at the start followed by a question mark at the end of the question)Ha (have you)? terminado el trabajo Have you finished the work?
?Ha (have you)? contestado la carta - Have you answered the letter?
Hemos (we have) vivido en Cuba - We have lived in Cuba.
Hemos (we have) recibido la carta - We have received the letter
Hemos (we have) vendido la casa - We have bought the house
Han(They have) visto a Luis - They have visited Luis.
Han(They have) escrito un libro - They have written a book.

I wanted to translate some of the phrases I have written and used google translate for the same..
I typed Han visito a Luis and it found the language as Italian and then translated it to have seen Luis and then changed the language to spanish and it was the same.

So han visto a Luis is - They have visited Luis in both Italian and Spanish.
Happy learning...
