Atlassian Update – 16 April 2018 Hi everyone, Thanks for your interest in this issue. This request is considered a potential addition to our longer-term roadmap. We'll typically review this request in about 12 months time, at which point we’ll consider whether we need to alter its status. For the nearest future we've decided to prioritize other areas of the Jira Server roadmap, including: Performance and stability improvements Archiving projects for improved performance Optimising the use of custom fields Improving performance of boards Improving Jira notifications Allowing users to edit shared filters and dashboards Mobile app for Jira Server You can learn more about our approach to highly voted server suggestions here .

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) and their transitions.
5. Custom Fields (same problem as with workflows)
6. Security Levels
7. Field Sceen Tabs
8. Field descriptions
In other words: anything user 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.
