In my admin page, the "Interface Locale" dropdown is not working. I already switched the default language to German, but is still shows English. The same with Chinese. How can I solve this problem?

  • do you want to change your store or your admin panel?

  • I want to change the language to Germen or Chinese of my admin panel, but no matter which language I switch, it is always shows English, only login information and date on the top are change, is something lost?

  • I don't have that problem, I just changed my interface locale in the bottom of admin panel and it changes the language for me, maybe you need to reinstall a fresh magento and see if that works or not. or maybe you are using an old magento version?

  • Do you have german language installed? magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/… Oct 21, 2015 at 22:34

1 Answer 1


English is the default if no translation package for the selected language is installed.

Some language packs can be found on Magento Connect:
