Amend the default translations for some system fields


Wondering if anyone is able to provide some guidance on how to change the default translation for fields in JIRA.   Reason - We have some users in Mexico who use Spanish as their language.  

For example JIRA has translated Assignee to Responsable and they would prefer to see Asignado.    There are probably a few other fields that are affected by this. 

I have tried a number of searches for this, so apologies if this is something that is able to be easily set.  (I am coming back to JIRA after 6 years, -and there have been a few changes.  Also i used to user my own server and now using the cloud. )

Hi Lyn - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

That's probably not something that can be changed. Just like we can't change it from Assignee to something else in English. 

I would suggest you open a support ticket with Atlassian to see what they say.
