Want you to set another language to your system or want you to modify the language-proberties?

I want to edit the existing German locale (to customize the welcome email)

This is where I came from. The email text is generated from a velocity template.

I read https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Modify+Confluence+Interface+Text
I found the file confluence/WEB-INF/lib/confluence-5.1.3.jar/com/atlassian/confluence/core/ConfluenceActionSupport.properties

There is written:

user.create.email.body=Hi {0},\
  Join me and the rest of the team on {1}!\
  It''s the one place to create, share, discuss and store ideas, projects and documents.\
  You''ll send less email, have fewer meetings, and get more done.\
  Your account has already been created, and your username is <b>{2}</b>.\

This is the English version of the text I need to modify, but I need the German one.

But where is the german text located? I grepped now the whole file system and searched in the sql database - I can't find it...

Hello Yaron,

I'm actually stuck with the same problem, did you find a solution? I want to translate some interface text to german, which is persisted in the CAS-property-file.



I did not find a solution yet and surrendered. If anyone knows how to resolve it I'd be happy to know...
