Change the word Issues

Can you change the word issues to something like, tickets?

We find that issues has a negative connotation when many of the things added are not issues but perhaps improvements or tasks.

Actually, you can change it without modifying the source code. It is a bit hard though for "Issues" bacause it is used in so many places. But we have done that for customers. Two options:

1. Using the "In Product Translations" plugin (Too many places to change though) : https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.translations.jira.inproduct

2. Translating JIRA.

I like the add-in. While yes it does not do 100% of what is needed, it did to it many places.

Thanks,

Hey Emma unfortunately that's not a supported thing. To change it one must go to Jira's source code and that's definetely non good.

If you want you can make a feature request for it. Let me know if I can provide any other assistance!

Hello,

This documentation may help you: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Customizing%20Text

Using the translator plugin that Jobin has mentioned is a good option to achieve this.

Cheers.
