    I was looking at events in my calendar and noticed that the text in month view is in a different language. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yes there is a thread on this already somewhere. I wouldn't worry about it too much. It looks like Lorem ipsum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Why it's doing that is anyone's guess.

    It IS Lorem ipsum, and it's like that to indicate that there is something in that day, but it's written too small to be able to actually read it (without a magnifying glass or holding the phone incredibly close to your face). So the choice was made to use "filler text", instead of the actual event information.

    Thankfully this is fixed in WP8.1. See about 2:43 in this video.

    The history of this goes back to the Windows Phone 7 days, when displays had a far lower resolution. Back then, it was acceptable to have some illegible text because no one could really read it.

    If you refresh the calendar enough times, you'll spot some easter egg text in English.
