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I still maintain it for people with outdated WordPress sites. And the plugin is still usefull for sites with outdated plugins that not obey get_user_locale().
- Upload the
admin-language-per-userdirectory (not its contents, the whole directory) to
/wp-content/plugins/on common WP instalation )
- Activate the plugin through the
Pluginsmenu in WordPress
- Go to user profile and choose backend language
