How to set the correct UI language?

Some time ago someone changed the Canvas default language from English to Swedish in our production instance. However, this means that someone who does not read Swedish cannot readily navigate the several menus needed to change the UI language to their choice of language.

 

There are a number of ways that this might be addressed, such as actually change the default or add a means that one can change without having to navigate multiple interfaces, for example via a button on the leftmost menu (under the university's logo), via default a special (default) course could appear in a new user's dashboard and this course would have a multi-language name and include a menu button to change language, or perhaps the new user script could be smart enough to look at the language preferences from the user's browser to give them instructions on how to change their language settings.

 

I wonder if others have faced this situation and have found a good solution.
