Is it possible to have two different locales?
One for the frontend and other for the backend?

I know that you can select your locale athe bottom left at the backend but that sets it in session and doesnt stores on database or something like that, so the next time you login you see it in english por example.

Thanks!

Hello centerax,

Did you find a way to always keep english on the backend and the locale on the frontend?
I am interested in that too.

Thanks!

I have achieved this by applying one locale to the default scope, and then specifying a different locale for the store or website scope.

1. Go to System > Configuration,

2. Select ‘Default Config’ in Current Configuration Scope at the top left,

3. go to General tab and expand Locale Options, if it’s not already expanded,

4. Select locale that you would like for your backend and Save Config,

5. Now select your Store or Site in Current Configuration Scope,

6. Untick ‘Use default’ next to locale, select locale that you would like for your frontend and Save.

Now your back-end and front-end should have different locales.

Don’t forget to refresh your cache to see the changes.
