Can one switch Naver and/or Kakao maps to English? I mean specifically web versions for browsers, not mobile apps.

  • Did you know that Google maps has translations added? – Weather Vane Aug 22 '19 at 9:47

    @WeatherVane Yes. But Google maps are unusable in/for South Korea. – user77409 Aug 22 '19 at 9:50
  • Did you find Finally Naver Maps English version is here? Or is that for app? There are a lot of resources to explore. – Weather Vane Aug 22 '19 at 9:54
  • @WeatherVane I saw that topic, but I don't know whether that applies to the app only or to the web version also. I was able to install the app in English, but I wasn't able to switch the web version to English. – user77409 Aug 22 '19 at 9:59
  • Google maps works fine in Korea. It's not as accurate as Korean maps, but it works fine. I've never had a problem with it. – insidesin Sep 30 '19 at 4:09

The answer is no, this is currently impossible. There are guidelines on how to use Naver's mobile app or Kakao's mobile app in English, but those methods don't work for their desktop app unfortunately.
