I'm going to install WP for the first time, but have a couple of question first regarding languages.
My blog itself is going to be in French for a French audience, so all the front-end stuff needs to be in French. But ideally I'd like the back-end admin interface to retain the original English version. Is this possible?
I know that there's a full French version I can download and install, but I suspect this means the back as well as the front end will be in French. I know there are also language files that can be added to an existing English install - does this have the same effect?
Finally, if I'm running a French language version and then install a different English theme, will this theme then run in French or will it stay in English?
