Status messages are not translated

Hello together,
the status messages that we have defined are not translated by Jira.

My colleague has set the ticket system to German and changes the status. The customer gets the status change in German.

I have my ticket system in english, so the customer gets the status changes in english.

Why does Jira not translate this into the appropriate language?


Thank you for your feedback,


Best regards,

Hello Fabienne,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When we add different languages to a Service Desk project, customers will receive notifications with the language they choose in the customer portal.

With that said, you can add German to the project, but if the customer didn't change the language on the portal to German, they will receive notifications in English.

Please, confirm if the customer set the portal to German. The notifications should be based on what customers choose in the portal and not the language the agent uses in Jira.


Hi Angélica,

thank you for your feedack. 

No, I cannot confirm this. The customer has set the language of the portal to English. My colleague in German. If my colleague changes the status, the customer receives the notification in German, even though the portal language is English.

So I think Jira is not translating it correctly.

Could you please check this again?

Thank you in advance,


Thank you for the details, Fabienne.

I was able to replicate the same issue here. 

I created a ticket in the portal and it was set to English. Then, I changed the status using an agent account with the profile language set to Portuguese and the status on the notification was in Portuguese.

Further searching, I found out that this issue was reported as a bug:

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