Dear Developers,

I think one important missing feature is to support multiple languages in the wiki.

Each wiki page could exist in one or more languages. The user should see the page in his most prefered language, if available. In Switzerland, for example, we have 4 offical country languages plus English. Providing some or all pages in those languages by naming them 'page1_EN', 'page1_FR', ... might be a solution, but the suffix should be hidden from the user and the proper language should automatically be picked when the user opens the wiki page 'page1'.

Best, Peter

Supported. This is a missing feature for our purposes.

So, what next?
This feature will be implemented?

This feature would save me quite some time and thus be highly welcome.

We started the system in German but would now like to share its content with our international outposts which are mostly capable of English. So I'd be a great deal to be able to add translations to each Wiki page and either choose from the languages available like at Wikipedia or simply redirect the user to their preferred language from their personal settings.

in the last few days I have translated some wiki pages on redmine.org. And I thought it would be nice if readers could see in the sidebar in which language the page is also available (with a link of course).

Would it be possible to provide a wiki macro that allows setting links in the sidebar? With this en editor could add links (just) manually. So no logic is there to create pages for other languages. But it would allow to set any kind of helpful relating links, what is IMO a quite flexible approach.

I think this should be the core feature.

+10 :)

A way to do that.
If we can add a dropdown for page language, we can do that:

- First, I create the page my_page in French.

If user go to example.org/projects/name/wiki/my_page.
Redmine redirect user to fr/my_page (because my_page exist).

- Now I create the page my_page in English.

If user go to example.org/projects/name/wiki/my_page.
Redmine redirect the user with the HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE:
- to fr/my_page if the user like French in his HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE,
- to en/my_page if the user like English in his HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE,
- to en/my_page if the user like other language in his HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE.

Hello, I search a little, and... I have removed Redmine and created a little PHP website with a CSV file :D

As a leader of a french team, this feature could be great to make documentation in our native langage and in english without adding "_FR" behind all pages...
