I've developed plugin and now it's time to internatiolize it.

<resource type="i18n" name="i18n" location="croc.apechnikov.PrTab"/> in atlassian-plugin.xml

in package .../resources/croc/apechnikov/ I have 2 files: PrTab.properties and PrTab_ru_RU.properties.
But my plugin isn't translated at all!

Do you have any versions why?

I've found an answer. Nowhere was written that PrTab.properties and PrTab_ru_RU.properties must be identical(((( that's a very stupid fail

Interesting. What do you mean by identical? Can have only same properties?

I am using not identical files and its working just fine.

Jobin, yes. When i did them the same, everything began to work.
Jan, that's strange.

Is it reading the key values? If it is only the transition which is failing, are you using the correct language?

And you have Russian selected in your user profile?

yes, it is, but only from PrTab.properties and not from PrTab_ru_RU.properties for Russian language. I'm programming this plugin for multiple languages if this may help.

Yes, i have but still don't works. I think there some problems with identifying PrTab_ru_RU.properties. May be i need somewhere in atlassian-plugin xml type something that tells jira to use PrTab_ru_RU.properties when language is set to russian?

Wherever you need translation, use the resolver's getText method.

I've imported I18N resolver module, but i need translation only in plugin description and in velocity templates.

protected Map createVelocityParams(BrowseContext ctx)


Map params = JiraVelocityUtils.getDefaultVelocityParams(super.createVelocityParams(ctx), authenticationContext);

.........some code.........


return params;


View template:


nothing works((

Jobin, thank you very much for your help.
