I created a new language file to deal with specifics of the subject matter in the projects we will managed


cp en.yml en-MJ.yml

edited some fields (issues --> tasks issue --> task)

change the first line of the field from





rake locales

I see it updating and parsing the files

Updating file ./config/locales/en-MJ.yml
parsing ./config/locales/en-MJ.yml...

restart redmine by restarting apache

log in as admin, check in my account, no new language...

so I did a little experiment.

instead I took the en-GB.yml file made a backup of it and did the same edits right in the en-GB.yml file ..

(rake locales, restart redmine, login as admin)

Now if I choose en-GB.yml I can see the edit.

So the problem is about adding a new language, am I wrong ?

I've been searching for hours, if you have any idea on how I can make it work you are most welcome
