Preferred Languages

Description

Thanks to language packs it’s easier than ever before to change the main language of your site. However, in some cases a single locale is not enough. When WordPress can’t find a translation for the active locale, it falls back to the original English strings. That’s a poor user experience for many non-English speakers.

This feature project aims to change that by letting users choose multiple languages for displaying WordPress in. That way you can set some sort of « fallback chain » where WordPress tries to load translations in your preferred order.

Please help us test this plugin and let us know if something is not working as you think it should.

An indispensable plugin for sites that use a language with formal/non-formal variant. This should become a WordPress core functionality!

Sometimes you stumble across plugins and wonder: why is this stuff not in core? I think because languages which have both informal and formal speech are a minority. Either way, this plugin saved my day. Thanks!

Thanks for Pascal to solve the problem of fallback languages. It is time to add it to the core and would show that WordPress is thinking globally.
