# Summary

This module lets the administrator see all administration pages in her preferred language. You can use this to display the frontend of the site in one language and still keep most of the backend in English (or another language of your choice). You can use the standard Languages page to choose the language of the admin pages.

Hi guys, I am having a prob in Drupal 8.0.1: the site language for my user (Admin) is English but the site still goes to the right after I enabled Hebrew as its default language...

Here is a screenshot.

For anyone not seeing this when editing a user account go to Administration - Configuration - Regional and language - Languages - Detection and selection and make sure to have “Account administration pages“ enabled and on first place.

How can I set all “Administration Pages language” only English and admin menu Always in left side?
I added a RTL Language translation File (Like: Persian, Farsi) to my drupal 8 site and What I simply want is to All "Administration Pages language" (or backend Language) in english only and all admin menu Always in left side and frontend pages of the site(Site Language) in another language (Like: persian, Farsi)
I do below setting:

1- I enabled the Language module, and set-up one additional language. Install was done in En (english), and I added Fa (Persian) language.
Language Module Configuration

2- I configure the administration language separate to the content language by below setting:

/admin/config/regional/language/detection:
Account administration pages: enabled

Interface text language Configuration

3-Admin -> Edit Profile -> Edit(Tab)
Configuration of Administration Language

This work properly for all administration page and those are English and in left side (LTR) except the "home page" and "user/1/" and admin/structure/block/demo/'Theme Name' of the site that the administration menu is in Persian Language and in right side (RTL) yet.
