Custom WPML Admin Menu (Unofficial Addon)


This Plugin replaces the Original WPML Lanuage Switcher in your backend with a brand new one perfectly placed in the Admin Bar!
It does not touch your frontend language switcher or anything else in your WPML installation.

See the screenshots section, to see the exact changes that will be made.

If you like the new addition, please rate the plugin good. And tell the WPML developers, that we need this implemented in the core of WPML. 😉


  • WPML Menu before plugin installation
  • WPML Menu after plugin installation


  1. Install the Plugin to your WordPress System
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Not settings, and nothing more to do. Just watch the old Language Switcher disappear, and the new one appear.


What does this plugin do?

This plugin replaces the original WPML Admin Language Switcher with a new select box, perfectly positioned in the Admin Bar. Nothing more.

Is this Plugin/Addon official from WPML?

No, absolutly not. This plugin is not in any way connected to the WPML Core Developers. But i`d love it, if they take over my idea.


There are no reviews for this plugin.
