I am trying to:

Add French content to a translated page in Beaver Builder, but the Admin language keeps changing to French, and not staying in English, so I've no idea how to read French, and have the content provided to me by a translator but I need to read French to operate the BB admin area.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

hidden link

I expected to see:

The admin section and BB in English.

Instead, I got: French

Hi there,

This is expected behavior with any page builder, In the admin dashboard the strings are respecting the option of the admin language but the Visual Editor works on the 'frontend, not in the admin area and hence it loads elements as per the language of the page.

This is very similar to the following scenario (with any theme)
1- Set the admin language in your profile to English.
2- Visit the second language in the front end.
> You'll notice that the admin bar switched to the second language

In short, if you want to edit the builder elements in your preferred admin language, it should be done in the admin dashboard (backend editor), not in the frontend.

I hope that clarifies the issue.

Kind regards
