Hi there, I am creating my first multilingual site and am new to WPML. The site is in English and Chinese. I am an English speaker and can't read Chinese at all. However I see that some parts of the user interface have been translated to Chinese. In the Admin Bar the text is in Chinese when I'm on the frontend of the site. But in the Dashboard the Admin Bar is in English again. How can I ensure that the Admin Bar is in English all the time? Thanks

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

For using English as the default language for the admin area, we will need to update some settings in the WP panel.

In order to do that, please follow the steps in the documentation below:

Please let me know if that is what you were looking for or if you still need help.
