Why is the Google ribbon always displayed in a foreign language?

My Google ribbon is always in Finnish even though I'm in France. See screenshot below:

I don't know how the line of links at the top of a Google search page is called: "search | Images | Maps | play | youtube |news etc...". I call it the "Google ribbon".

Logging into my Google account fixes this (I see everything according to my language setting). But I'd like to be able to search in an English interface also when I'm not logged-in.

The company I work for is Finnish. The desktop computer I use comes from Finland but I have set my locale settings in Windows to Irish, so that I have the English language and the Euro by default. I work in France and my IP address is French.
