JSM - Showing a different language

Hi All,

Recently we moved to Jira Cloud from Server.

We have enabled CSAT now in JSM. But I am noticing an issue with the CSAT emails that get sent to our customers.

The primary language should be English in these emails. My JSM team is in Brazil and it seems that JSM is adhering to their native language instead of what is set in JSM.

How can I fix this?

Hello Kale,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Testing on my local site, I was able to replicate the same issue. What is happening, in this case, is that Adriel might be using their Jira in Portuguese and this is overriding the customers' default language.

When changing our Atlassian account language, not everything in Jira is translated, some status shows in English and others in Portuguese. It will depend if a translation were added to that status or not, that's why some status shows correctly on the notification.

Agent profile in Portuguese and customer profile in English:

Both agent and customer profile in English:

This issue was reported as a bug:

Please, click on "This affects my team" and also watch to receive updates.

For now, the best option is to ask your Brazilian agents to change their profile language to English on

Kind regards,

@Angélica Luz thank you for the quick response!

Is it possible to set up JSM CSAT to always show English to my customers but still allow my Brazilian team to use Jira in Portuguese?

I think it would be unfair for me to force my Brazilian team to use English.

However from my customer perspective they obviously cannot read Portuguese so I need to ensure that CSAT is setup as English.

Hi Kale,

Due to the bug, it will not be possible, but I found a workaround that might help.

This workaround will only be possible if customers are not using the portal in Portuguese, otherwise, it will start affecting them instead of customers that use it in English.

In Jira, it’s possible to add translations for statuses and resolutions and you can add any translations you want. So, what I did was select Portuguese and added the translation using the same as English.

These steps must be done by a Jira administrator.

Go to Cog icon > Issues > Statuses. On this page, click on Translate statuses.

Select Portuguese (Brazil) and click on View. Then, just copy and paste the statuses and descriptions.

After updating that, it will be necessary to translate the resolutions as well. 

On Cog icon > Issues > Resolutions, click on Translate resolutions and follow the same steps.

Hope this helps!
