I am using Audacity 2.4.2 with Windows 10.
Hi, I’ve been trying to mute or delete one side of speaker(or headset) in order to input deferent sound from each side. For example English on one side, other language on the other side. I split stereo and deleted, erased and muted one side. But I still hear the sound from both sides. I believe it’s possible to do. Please help me.

If you keep the silent channel it will play back silence on on side. But a true-mono track will play through both speakers There is a Left-Right pan/balance slider that you can use the sound to move between left & right.
It sounds like you used “Split stereo to mono” (which creates two mono tracks that both play through left and right), rather than “Split stereo track” (which creates a “left” mono track and a “right” mono track).
No, I “Split stereo track”
(which creates a “left” mono track and a “right” mono track). I thought so.
By the way I imported one of my mp3 files. And tried this task. Does it matter? This mp3 file is the one I created on Audacity.
Many years ago, many Windows drivers used to “bleed” most or all of the sound from the left channel into the right, and vice-versa. I haven’t seen much of that recently. However, if you are having this problem, it is possible that Windows is doing this for you “at no extra charge”, alternatively, you have have a hardware problem. (I recently encountered a mis-wired headphone cable that threw me for a loop).
So one thing you can try is to type in “mmsys.cpl” into the Windows search bar (by the magnifying glass icon). Select the playback tab, select your device, then select “CONFIGURE” in the lower left-hand corner of the box. Select your configuration, run the tests, click on the speakers, click Next, etc. Turn your headphones around and put them on backwards and repeat the tests. Make sure you get full separation between your speakers.
When you are satisfied that Windows is communicating with your headphones properly, go back to your playback tab, then click on “PROPERTIES”, and cycle through all of the options. If you see any Boosts or Enhancements, turn them OFF. You may then wish to repeat your configuration test.
I hope this helps.
