The lightweight plugin extends the default functionality and pulls out the language selection to the admin bar so you can easily switch between them.

Note: Plugin in versions 1.0 allowed setting up administration language for different users for quite a long time. Since WordPress 4.7 version, this feature is now provided natively by WordPress.
