Is there any easy way to customize Confluence translation?

Our customer want's to use their own terms (eq. in navigation, profile info) in Confluence layout. I've visited Atlassian Translation Portal but I haven't find there any way to save such specific terms and add them to translation package. Is it possible? Or should I just unzip jar-package and rewrite the terms?

The best way is to create your own partial language pack -- details here.

thanks - I think that it helps us a lot!


Hi @david,

I've tried the described approach following the instructions in your link. However, I'm stumbling upon the fact that a specific string I'd like to translate is not incorporated in the original "" file. Hence, I wouldn't know how to refer to the string in my partial translation. The string that I would like to translate is: "Minor change? (no notifications will be sent)" as seen in the Confluence editor. Can you guide me towards a solution for translating this string?

Thanks in advance,

Is there anyone who can contribute on my question above?

Looking in (for Confluence 4.0) I've found this:

minor.edit=<b>Minor change?</b> (no notifications will be sent)

Edit that line to what you require and then bundle up your language pack as previously described.


it works quite well with English version - but I've some problems withe other languages which are plugins. Is it so that I must dowload the latest version from Translations-portal, open the package, find out the terms our customer want to change, repack jar and install the plulgin?




There is a very useful plugin which allows to translate JIRA in place:

If there is enough interest we will create something similar for Confluence. Please vote if you would like to use it:
