I am trying to: Keep my website with french default language as always in the backend too

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: Backend pages

I expected to see: French on the backend dashboard

Instead, I got: English WP dashboard, but when going through my pages and everything, even on top bar WP Dashboard everything is set as French default language.

Languages: English (English ) Portuguese (Brazil) (Português )

Timezone: America/Sao_Paulo (GMT-03:00)

Thank you for contacting us. Clicking on the Users > Your Profile and updating the language to French displays the dashboard as expected - and for the plugins that have the french translation. I will attach a picture for you to see.

Please, let me know if I can help with any other questions you may have about it. I'll be happy to help.

Thank you.
