About Language Plugin: Is it possible to get English & French only?

We need this functionality but we don't want to load up our Macro list in the Macro selection screen. English & French is well enough for us.

Hi Luc, 

There is 2 way for you to disable the language:

A) You can disable it via manage add-on (recommended)

  • Navigate to General Configuration > Atlassian Marketplace > Manage Add Ons
  • Change to all add ons
  • Find the language pack and disable it. (Example: Confluence German (Germany) Language Pack

B) Remove the language packs from the bundled plugins archive (Remove the file and place in a safe place, you might need it in future.).

  • Shutdown Confluence
  • Go to <Confluence-install>/Confluence/WEB-INF/atlassian-bundled-plugins/
  • Remove the desired language packs (the languages start with Confluence-language-pack), usually there will be 4 default file as below:
    - confluence-language-pack-de_DE-5.4.0-v2r8282-2013-12-10.jar
    - confluence-language-pack-es_ES-5.4.0-v2r15919-2013-12-10.jar
    - confluence-language-pack-fr_FR-5.4.0-v2r2499-2013-12-10.jar
    - confluence-language-pack-ja_JP-5.4.0-v2r20318-2013-12-10.jar
  • Start Confluence

I hope it helps.
