How to translate options of a custom specific field

We created a new field (customer specific) : Select list with simple choice.

The name of the field we translated in the needed languages, but the created option values we did not translate until yet. Where we can translate them? Is it possible to translate the option values?

A bit late, but answering nonetheless.

I don't think it's possible, unfortunately. 

At least we haven't found a way to do it - and we opened for this particular case. 

If you've found a way to do this since the question was posted, please share; if not, please vote for this issue smile

But it does not work with the custom field types that Jira provides :(

Sorry Martin, as I told you on issue JIRASERVER-40049 we are working on this.

Hello Juliane,

JIRA does not have a 100% translation. You can check it here.

You can also use this plugin that will help you with your question.

I am searching if there is the possibility to translate the option-values I created by myself. I do not need any translation-tool and I don't want to translate any JIRA special text - it is a custom specific field which I have created with some option-value for selection. And I don't know if I am able to translate these options. Thanks for your answer!
