Multi-lingual With Switching

Added by John McBade over 6 years ago

I run Redmine in an organization where both English and Japanese are spoken.

I have been trying to find out, is there a way to have the field name, titles, menus ites etc be switchable for the language of the user, maybe via a drop down or even a language detection?

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

An administrator may set default language for Redmine.
Users may set their languages different from the default language. This is done in the users' profile pages.

Above is related to the user interface. It is not valid for custom field names and values.

For clarities sake: it's not valid for all the default data that is loaded into Redmine initially like roles, trackers, issue statuses, custom fields and all the enumerations.

Has this been addressed in any 1.3x, 1.4x, or 2.x releases? Or is RM still only capable of displaying values that were pre-loaded during installation?

This plugin should really be added to the core of RM:

Given that all it does is shove a ton of translations into the settings table, I don't really think so...

Though the functionality is nice, needs better implementation (and tests, at least as per things that usually get merged in).

Well, I didn't mean that we should shove it into the core without testing ;) I guess what I should have said is that Redmine needs this functionality, badly.

Does anyone have a solution to address this in RM 2.x?
