Different Admin and Theme Languages

Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to define different admin and theme languages? By adding the following code to the functions.php file of your WordPress theme, you can set different admin and theme languages.

Note: Don’t define WPLANG in your wp-config.php file.

// setup one language for admin and the other for theme
// must be called before load_theme_textdomain()
function set_my_locale($locale) {
	$locale = ( is_admin() ) ? "en_US" : "it_IT";
	setlocale(LC_ALL, $local );
	return $locale;

add_filter( 'locale', 'set_my_locale' );

We hope this code helped you set different admin and theme languages. You may also want to check out our guide on remove date filter on post type admin pages.
