It is possible to translate it, but you can't hide it (well, if you tried hard, you could, but then JIRA wouldn't work - it's the one single field that is absolutely mandatory), and it would require significant code changes in JIRA and all its add-ons to make it longer than 255 characters.

Thanks for your feedback!

So could you let me k now how can translate it (label of Summary field)? Thanks a lot.
