If you go to Preferences -> Other you can avoid seeing posts in languages you don't understand. Though this relies on the poster setting the language, which is currently a manual step. Also future versions of Mastodon might have machine translation. And you should just learn Dutch like it's 1699 :-)

@sjors Absolutely no effect whatsoever on mobile app @tusky still see all languages

@mbrmark @tusky did the authors you're looking at set the correct language for their post?

@mbrmark @tusky it would be nice if clients detected the language and set it automatically. Or if that's not accurate enough, it could prompt "are you sure this is English?" when you hit the Toot button, above some threshold.
