Backend Language Switcher

Version 1.2.x

Allows authors to change the backend language with a single click.



  1. Make sure the Language Redirect or Frontend Localisation is already installed and enabled.
  2. Install and enable Backend Language Switcher just like any other extension.
  3. Language Extensions can be installed to provide a better experience for multilingual users.

No further config is needed; the language-switching functionality is added directly to the Symphony backend.


Simply change your backend language setting by clicking the flags in the navigation menu bar.
