#46759 closed feature request (duplicate)

Front-end admin bar in user selected language

Reported by: apedog's profile apedog Owned by:

I'm administering and developing a non-English RTL website. However I've set my user language to English. I'm more fluent in English; I'm used to having my menu on the left; I'm more familiar with the English nomenclature than the translated versions (eg. 'plugins' gets translated to some silly thing that I can never quite remember means 'plugins') etc.

However the admin-bar on the front-end is output in the default site language and not in the user-selected language. It would be extremely helpful to have the admin-bar on the front-end be in the user-selected language and not in the site's default language. Or at least to have the option to set the front-end admin-bar language in the User Profile.

I would also suggest that this should be considered the "correct" behaviour. The admin-bar is in essence a part of the admin back-end and should therefore be localized for the specific user/admin accessing it. Regardless of the front-end/public-facing locale settings.

Thank you @SergeyBiryukov

I had not found that when searching for similar topics. I didn't know the admin-bar is actually called the toolbar.

Am I to understand that this feature that is not in need of discussion? And that its implementation is only dependent on #41305 being resolved?
