You can do the following:

  • Get the the language pack (e.g. de_DE.mo) from wordpress.org. If the language pack isn’t available as a standalone download, you could also use the .mo file which is bundled in the WordPress ZIP-file for your language. Located under wp-content/languages.
  • Move the .mo file to wp-content/languages/ of your default (english) WordPress installation.
  • Change the WPLANG constant in wp-config.php to the new locale (e.g. de_DE)
  • In your functions.php add the following filter:
add_filter('locale', 'wpse27056_setLocale');
function wpse27056_setLocale($locale) {
    if ( is_admin() ) {
        return 'en_US';

    return $locale;

Or you can use plugins for that: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/kau-boys-backend-localization/
Hope this helps !
