    Just upgraded a site from 4.2 to 6.0 and let me tell you it still suprises my that it seems I am the only on complaining about this.

    Site is multilingual front and has 3 backend languages.

    When you change an english page you get the backend in English
    When you change an italian page you get the backend in Italian
    When you change an german page you get the backend in German

    www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_language_backend_change.swf

    Now Telerik has a problem including multiple backend languages in SBE but has no problem forcing 3 different backend languages on my clients!!!!

    Any idea how someone feels who speaks english has the backend language set to english and tries to change an image on a japanease or arabic page -> let me tell you this can easely turn into an adventure.

    This is from August 2011!!

    I my, almost another year later this still isn't fixed. I guess it's safe to assume this will never be fixed. Multilingual hell.

    Hi Markus,

     Have you found any solution to this major annoyance?

    Our client wishes to have just a single back-end language in a site with 6 languages in the front-end. One of the languages is Russian! Another is Chinese! It's quite funny watching the editors gaping at the screen and scratching their heads.

    1)

    I started complaining about this in August 2011

    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/bugs-issues-/translation-changes-backend-language-on-pages

     2) There is a PITS issue. Unfortunately all PITS Links are BROKEN
    http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/sitefinity/7750

     3) Lubomir thought it was not a feature and hoped it would be fixed in 4.3 - we are heading for 7.0

    4) Georgi - We definitely include in 44.SP1 (LOL)

    Bottom line

     Unless you get 300 votes on the feedback forum or someone on the inside of Telerik who can put some pressure on this. 

    THIS WILL NOT CHANGE

     Start looking for clients with only one backend language. Sad to say.

     I just wished that Telerik would open an office in Aman and one in Peking and Headquarter would have to administrate the pages in these two languages.

    Even worse is that if you import a german language pack because you want some controls to be localized settings turns to german as well.

     This is simply borked and in my opinion no one at Telerik wants to touch it. 

     So as for me. I gave up hope and simply live with it and enjoy other new and improved features of the best CMS on the market.

     But that does not mean I am happy with this.

     Markus

    Thanks for responding.

    I, too, am afraid this is not going to change anytime soon. Mainly because all localized email notifications and error messages are considered by Sitefinity as back-end strings. So to separate these system-inherent strings from back-end labels would require some thought (guess what, it's not a problem in Joomla).

    The best CMS on the market? You probably mean Sitefinity 3.7, which was not as hermetically closed as the latest versions...

    No I am talking about 6.x and future versions.

    Every release bring new great features I really do appreciate. But yes I am still waiting for some desperately. But good things come to those who wait.

    PS: the portal is so slow that I first thought paging is broken there too: www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_feedback_paging.swf
