Website now appears in Japanese

A UK website I use a lot, now appears in Japanese. No other searches are affected. Happens on Google, Firefox, Edge and Avast secure browser

Hi Keith, did all the [email protected] was correct, ££££ in Amazon. It does offer to translate, but it's still "Whacked".. nothing like it should be. This is the same on all devices and browsers in my home and only on this one site, which I need to access for my work. Do you think it may be related to my Draytek router in some way? I noticed there is a new firmware update as of 27th Feb.2019. Or should I ask Plusnet first?

Tried That. They said their site is OK and it must be my PC.(not very helpful). We have 2 PCs, a tablet, a laptop and smart phone, all doing the same thing on that website.

At a guess your browsers are redirecting you to the Japanese wed site instead of the UK web site.

What browser are you using on your machines?

I'm using any browser I have. Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Avast secure browser. All with the same results

Hi Eddie and Keith, I cannot see any google logo, black arrow or English text. Just a screen full of Japanese. It's driving me nuts.
