Welcome to WPML Support forum.

I'm not sure if I understand it correctly, but It seems that you're referring to the language of the Admin which you wanted to be in English regardless of which language you select in Admin language switcher.

If this the case, you can edit you profile (click Edit My Profile link on top right corner of admin dashboard). Then set the 'Language' option to English. Click 'Update Profile. And be sure that the option 'Set admin language as editing language.' is not selected.

If this is not the case, could you please elaboration more so I can better understand the issue. It would be great if you could share some screenshots to describe the issue. You can find the 'Upload an image' button below the comment area.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
