Is there a way to block ads of languages other than the one specified in Google adsense accounts?

Great question - perhaps the ASA could let us know. I often get the odd Chinese ad thrown in - this, I believe, is completely useless to my target audience. I currenty just add the url to my competitive ad filter - but this is now very full, so is problematic.

Just got one answer. Put the line below into the adsense script.
google_ad_language = 'en'

But is it against TOS?

Where did you get the answer? I assume if it was from adsense then it is OK.

Unless adsense support gave *you* permission to change the javascript code, stay away from changing the adsense code. They are picky about changes to their code.
