Currently, when you install WordPress in other languages, all users see the admin interface in the same language.

WordPress 4.7 introduces multi-language feature for User Admin which allows users to switch the admin language from their user profile, so each user can choose the language they prefer. You will still need to install the languages before users can switch them.
