my WordPress site is currently set to “English”. I like the back-end to be completely in English, so it is easier to follow tutorial instructions etc. However, the front-end must be in German due to different reasons.
For instance, in need to have
lang="de-DE" in the HTML-header for some plugin to work correctly.
Is there a way to achieve this?
You can set the site language to whatever you wish in the
Settings > General > Site Language.
After that, you can head over to your profile and choose a language for the back-end. To do so, head over to
Users > Your Profile > Language and change it to English.
However, there is an issue with Admin-Ajax requests. If you set the back-end language to English, the Ajax requests will be in English too.
