If the user clicks the edit link for a node whose language is different from the current interface language of the user in the Content page (admin/content), the interface language does not change when the edit page loads. It causes problems with references.

I'm not good at English, so I include screenshots describing the problem:

Maybe i18n is not to blame, and someone can let me know how to change the interface language via redirection (using theme or other modules). I don't want the interface language and the content language differ in my site.

Dropped that option so this is not needed anymore, see #1551688: Drop 'Switch interface for translating' option (Reconsider)

well, I don't fancy re-opening old issues but I'm a bit puzzled here.
The behavior described in #1 is still well alive I'm afraid, and actually really confusing for the users/editors.

The behavior of the edit and delete links in /admin/content is different from all other places. They link to the node without switching the interface language, they keep the current language.
While the title link is switching.

If I am on /node/[nid]/translate then both title and edit links are switching language.

The non-switching edit/delete links are actually causing problems, with for instance a taxonomy widget with translated terms. If interface language != node language, then it is reset to none.

Am I missing something ?

This is some inconsistency in Drupal core (Content translation), so you can file an issue for it.
