How to change language in Prestashop admin panel (back office)?

It took me some tome to figure it out how to change admin panel (back office) language. This post may save somebody’s time :) with this problem. Click on “My preferences” in the left corner of your back office:

My preferences
My preferences

Select your desired language:

Select language
Select language

If you can not find your desired language then you’ll have to import it. This can be accomplished in two different ways. You can import your language from a file – more information in Prestashop wiki. You can also import language directly form Prestashop website. Go to Preferences->Localization area. Select what to import:

Localization
Localization

If you import another language then it will be available in Prestashop front office also so do not forget to translate your shop in newly added language. It would be nice to have ability to chose different languages for front office and back office but I could not find this possibility at the moment.

That’s it! Hope you’ll find it useful.
