How to localize custom fields, issue type, statuses, transitions in JIRA?

Hi,

How can we localize custom fields (and value in list), custom issue types, custom statuses, transitions? It is possible?

For this are using localization files (*.properties)?

Thanks!

This is all stored in your database

Note that we would only like to localize names of fields ... not the content. We needed localization to multiple languages.

Yep, this is solution for statuses and issue types... what about custom fields and transitions?

See the links for transitions and customfields. Hope it helps.

We have implemented a plugin for doing translations of custom fields, options, tabs in screens also working in then issue navigator. What we currently not support is translation of Filter and Dashboards, but could be done also.

PLugin is currently not on the marketplace. If you are interested in evaluation and buying the plugin we can send you an offer.

Best regards

You have to name the custom fields in your own language.
