The issue I am having with my site is, I have created a site in German, (the primary language) I am using your Plugin so I can create English translations. When I set German as the primary language it changes my back end WordPress into German. I don't speak German.

Is there a way for me to make German the default language but keep the instructions and text on WordPress in English?

Please help!!!

Kind regards,
