      Atlassian Update – 4 January 2016

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks for voting and commenting on this issue. Your feedback is key to helping us understand how you use JIRA so we can continue improving your experience. We have reviewed this issue over the last few days; unfortunately we don't have any plans to support this in JIRA for the foreseeable future.

      Please remember that jira.atlassian.com is one of many inputs for the JIRA roadmap. You can learn more about our process here.

      I understand that our decision may be disappointing. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

      From the JIRA 3.2 Beta Release Notes:
      "Continuing our commitment to a fully internationalisable issue manager, JIRA 3.2 provides the ability to translate all issue settings - i.e. Priorities, Statuses, Issue Types, and Resolutions. This allows for even more complete translations to present JIRA to each user in their own chosen language."

      I still miss being able to translate the following settings before JIRA is fully internationalisable.

      1. Project Categories
      2. Issue linking
      3. Sub-Task Types
      4. Workflows (i know i can make a new workflow in a second language, but when two persons with two different languages uses the same project, the workflow will only be presented in one of the languages)
      5. Custom Fields (same problem as with workflows)
      6. Security Levels
      7. Field Screen Tabs
      8. Field descriptions

      In other words: anything unser configurable that is shown to the users.

      As long as this is missing, it still gives no sense to use JIRA in a multilanguage environment. My setup is in danish. A person speaking only English will not be able to use it, since the workflow, the security levels, and so on gives no meaning to him.

      Disclaimer: I haven't installed 3.2 yet, so if any of the above settings actually IS translatable, please excuse me for not being up-to-date.
