There are multiple issues where users had problems understand the way we combine interface and content languages.
This proposal tries to separate the two concepts: interface language and content language, and contains several display variants. 

  • Interface Language
    • is set from Administration - Localization
  • Content Language
    • is set from Edit mode - Document Translations panel
  • Solution
    • Separate the functionality in two controllers
      • One that manages the interface language found near the global actions
      • One that manages the content/document language found in the content area
