CHL-Change HTML Lang

Description

CHL-Change HTML Lang is a simple WordPress SEO plugin for changing HTML language attribute(language_attributes();) value in header.

Many of us use WordPress(Admin area UI) in the English version but write their content in another language. So by default WordPress uses English(en-US) language attribute for <?php language_attributes(); ?> used in header.php.
For example – If you write your content in Hindi language but use WordPress(Admin area UI) in English, your html language attribute must be hi or hi-IN for many reasons including SEO but WordPress echo html language attribute of installed locale version (en-US by default).
You can’t change HTML language attribute directly so I created this plugin(CHL-Change HTML Lang) that allows you to change HTML language attribute from the dashboard.
After activating this plugin simply visit Settings → General and change HTML lang tag.

Wonderful. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a million, Pratik, for making this plugin available to anyone in need of changing the language of posts without having to change the entire admin interface's language. This option should be part of WordPress by default.
