    Now, tap on "Add Language..."
    .
    This is the section at the bottom that shows the preferred language order. It also reads "Apps and websites will use the first language in this list that they support". This means that if you go to a Chinese web site that has no English, you will see Chinese text. If the same site has no Chinese but has Russian, then you will receive Russian characters. It's simply a usability feature that helps you a bit. Let's add a language. You will see a list of languages.
