Change Language of JIRA OnDemand

The Atlassian Webseite tells me, that JIRA is available in many different languages - but I don't find the switch for the language in my JIRA OnDemand.

Where can I change the language?

Hi Stefan,

Unfortunatelly due to some limitations OnDemand is only avaliable in English, this page explains that in further detail:

There's also a improvement request regarding this here, I strongly recommend you to vote for it so it increases it's priority:

Hope this information helps!


Stefan, thanks for pointing that out! JIRA OnDemand has a set of restrictions that differ from JIRA standalone (those are outlined here: and Atlassian is currently looking into ways to make that more transparent to users.

In face of that I've opened a ticket on to change the Full Features page to inform of the language restrictions: I recommend you to vote for it (so it increases it's priority) and add yourself as a watcher (if you wish to receive updates).

Again, thanks for the feedback and apologies for any confusion our documentation might have caused.


Yes, but I only have "English" in the dropdown box and so cannot switch to another language.

Oh right! They never continue with this. There's an issue created about this:

There are many questions about this and all say the same thing as here:
