I am trying to: I want an admin panel in my language

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see: I want all admin screen in English even editing pages in French or Turkish language.

Instead, I got: My admin panel language is switching to a language that I'm being editing. I've already selected English in User Profile and checked "Set admin language as editing language". It doesn't matter if I checked this. The Language option is switched to the language that I'm currently editing.

There is no debug info box in that page. I've attached pages screenshot.

Hi there,

I will help you with your issue,

Please uncheck the option "Set admin language as editing language" in your user profile, Enabling the option will override the language as per the language of the edited post/page.

I hope this helps you better.

Kind regards
