I am using WordPress version 4.4.2. The problem I am facing is, I can not change the site language form Settings -> General -> Site language.

If I change the language and hit save, the language does not update. I am using Loco Translate plugin. The plugin does not show any warning or error anywhere while translating.

    Does the problem persist if you disable the plugins?

  • Only the translation plugin? Yes. I have also tested with some other plugins. The problem persists. Apr 5 '16 at 7:06

I found the solution. There was no languages folder in /wp-content directory. I created a the directory and gave it proper permissions. Switching between languages worked after that.
