  • I work with polylang for a long time. It works great. There is one thing that I don’t like. When you’re logged in and work on a page with a certain language the menu also changes in that language. If you don’t speak that language you don’t know what you are doing.

    Thank you for your review. The language of the admin bar is indeed not managed by Polylang. We don’t do that because it would be rather expensive to load translations in 2 languages instead of one.
