Admin Language Per User

Admin Language Per User | unclego


Lets you have your backend administration panel in english or any installed language, even if the rest of your blog is translated into another language. Language preferences can be set per user basis in user profile screen.

Tested on MultiSite.

Deals with frontend ajax requests

After release of WordPress 4.7 this plugin is a bit obsolete.

In WordPress 4.7 users are able to select their preferred locale (language) when editing their profile. Plugin add exact same functionality to pre 4.7 WordPress.

I still maintain it for people with outdated WordPress sites. And the plugin is still usefull for sites with outdated plugins that not obey get_user_locale().
