I have a requirement to do a velocity template which is a combination of English and Afrikaans text. Firstly, the issue created date needs to be in the form dd MMMM yyyy i.e. 2 May 2017. This date must be in both English and Afrikaans.
Next is I have other text in the template of which some needs to be shown in Afrikaans. Please can you advise how I can achieve this.
If the content you are referring to is found via an i18n key, and your JIRA installation has support for Afrikaans, you can change the i18n locale used for rendering i18n content "on-the-fly".

It looks like there is no Afrikaans locale support in Java's JRE by default, but it might be possible by changing a Java system property to include CLDR as a Locale provider: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/intl/enhancements.8.html#cldr. I cannot vouch for whether this actually works however.
If your Afrikaans content is just part of your template and not retrieved through i18n keys, then it will just render as you have it in your template.

"ff your Afrikaans content is just ..."...the template I am doing has the top half written in English and the second is in Afrikaans...BUT the portion which needs to be translated are the JIRA issue STATUS values (which can be one of many......)
Another week, another Topic Tuesday! Agile has been on my mind a lot lately because I've seen good implementations and bad implementations, but now as a Jira admin it matters more to me whether...
