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.

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.

Cool plugin. I use it to have multiple variants of one language (like de_de, de_ch...). Just works!

Esto es imprescindible para cualquier usuario no angloparlante. El estado de las traducciones es irregular y sería perfecto tener un segundo e incluso un tercer idioma local para cargar si algo falta en tu idioma local, y así que no salga media web en español - por ejemplo - y el resto en inglés. Esto ya estaría en WordPress si los principales equipos de desarrollo no fuesen angloparlantes, y claro, para ellos no es una prioridad ni de lejos.
