Changing the interface language doesn't refresh the ui

When changing the language in Preference > Interface, the save change button only says “Saved!” in the previous language.

I feel the ui should at minimum says “Saved!” in the new language. But I think a full reload should be done. It’s brutal but at least the interface will be in the correct language.

@zogstrip Thank you to move the post from bug - Discourse Meta to ux - Discourse Meta , It’s maybe better sorted there, but I need to say it: I feel it’s a bug (even if it’s not a big one)

It’s not a bug because there’s no broken functionality, it behaves exactly as it says it will. The note below Interface Language quite clearly reads:

User interface language. It will change when you refresh the page.

Because until you refresh the page the new language isn’t available.
