    Hello, support,

    we would like to deliver another language file for one user role. How can we do this?

    Hi,

    Site admin can install needed language file for WordPress temporally changing site language at the Settings->General page. (Change language, update settings, change language back).

    WordPress offers special filter ‘locale’, which allows to automatically change language according your own conditions. You may use code below as a starting point, change ‘author’ role to your own:

    
    // Change site language for a role
    add_filter( 'locale', 'change_site_lang_for_role', 10, 1 );
    
    function change_site_lang_for_role( $locale ) {
        
        if ( !is_user_logged_in() ) {
            return $locale;
        }
        
        $user = wp_get_current_user();
        if ( !is_array( $user->roles ) ) {
            return $locale;
        }
        
        if ( in_array('author', $user->roles ) ) {
        
            $locale = 'de_DE';
        }
    
        return $locale;
    }
    // end of change_site_lang_for_role()
