I am hearing from some international searchers that the Google knowledge panel is showing up in a different language than the rest of the search results. So if you search in English, Google returns English search results, but the actual knowledge panel on the right side is coming up in the local regional language instead of English for them.
Here are some examples:
I’ve had a ton of my English queries producing Hebrew Knowledge Panels lately. Super super super annoying since my Hebrew is not good enough to pick up the finer details.

It seems like a bug to me but I cannot replicate it at all. I tried to change my location setting but it doesn’t trigger for me. I am also based in New York, and Google knows that.
Do you have this issue?
