Although WordPress 4.7 introduces the user language feature, this plugin is still tremendously helpful in my customer support job when I have to log in on sites running WordPress in an older version than 4.7. One feature that the WP 4.7 core user language doesn’t provide is to pick your language upon login—which makes this plugin even more helpful in customer support, since navigating for example an RTL back-end to find the profile page can be quite time-consuming when you're not used to it. (I assume the same is true for LTR for other people.) All in all, this plugin is a huge win. I wouldn’t want to miss it in my daily job!
I think we should thank the author for a good job. It was a long time before this feature appeared in the core of WordPress 4.7. Thanks!
This plugin is very useful! Regardless of language you users use, site admin should use English! English used in manuals, tutorials, forums, support articles etc. Industry terms are English by native, and it is much easier to find solutions and understand interface in native language. Thankyou very much for this simple, but awesome plugin!!
If WP wants t truly become multi-lingual as it claims to be wanting - then this plugin's behavior should be part of core! So far it works well with WP 4.4, but I wish the developer would update the plugin compatibility version.
And it works great with 4.3.1!
