Train from Milan (MXP)

everyone says look at www.trenitalia.com for train schedules at the top they say to click "English" - I can Find NO English ! We are trying to get from MXP (Milan Airport) to Santa Margherita Ligure - by train. This does not seem to be an easy task. Please help !

Look for the picture of the British flag in the upper right corner, and click on it. Use "Malpensa Aeroporto" as your departure station, and Santa Margherita Ligure as your destination. I just picked a day and time later this week, and there are plenty of options. Looks like a 3-4 hour trip.

The British flag is often the symbol for the English version. On your left just under the Trenitalita symbol. The Spanish flag is there also. Kind of tiny and easy to overlook. If just checking schedules/times the bahn.de site may be a little easier to use but you cannot buy tickets for Italy there.
