I need to change the word "Issues" to "Tasks" in the welcome panel.
I unpacked the language pack. I need to update the files by modifying "Issues" to "Tasks".
Can you help me: how can i identify the key to change the "Issues" menu in the welcome screen to " Tasks".
How can I identify the "Issue Type" Label Key in the unpacked files?
I understand that you want to make your own translation values for a few different places within Jira Server. I was looking into this problem further. In my example, I was using Jira 8.6.0 here, and I found that in order to make changes as you have described here, you would first need to copy and unpack an existing language jar file. For my instance I picked out the Spanish Language pack (ES), but these steps could be used for just about any language pack, just note that the filenames will be slightly different.
One caveat about this is that Jira has separate language packs for Jira Core and Jira Software. Even though you created this as a Jira Software question, the particular parts you are referring to here are actually in the Jira Core language pack.
On my system that file can be found in $JIRAINSTALL/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/atlassian-bundled/plugins/jira-core-language-pack-es_ES-8.6.0.v20191127000000.jar
In my system, I copied that file to another folder, changed the extension to .zip, extracted that file and searched for the strings in question here.
I found that in the unpacked file of /jira-core-language-pack-es_ES-8.6.0.v20191127000000/com/atlassian/jira/web/actionJiraWebActionSupport_es_ES.properties there are numerous elements. I believe the ones you are looking for here are:
issue.field.issuetype=Tipo de Incidencia
As you can see in my example, this appear to be the correct element names for translating these parts.
So if you wanted to you could
I hope this helps.
Ah, well in that case, try the file in that directory called jira-languages-8.6.0-en_US.jar
By default this jar file exists, but I would expect it to be largely void of many of these property entries I mentioned above. Since the default of Jira is in English this file should exist, but might not have all the elements found in the other translation files.
