This document explains how to use translations.atlassian.com site to translate Atlassian Products into local languages.

 

Another option

It is also possible to translate specific JIRA and Confluence messages on the fly with InProduct translation plugins:

Only self-hosted JIRA and Confluence are supported - IPT plugins do not work with JIRA and Confluence Cloud.

 

To translate Atlassian products into your local language please follow the instructions below (you will need to log in with Atlassian account to translate).

  1. Visit the Atlassian Translations site and click Translate link in your language:



  2. You will be presented with the translation page:


    You can use the search dropdowns at the top to select:

    • the product you wish to translate
    • the product version
    • the group of strings, for example Dashboard or Administration
    • the status of the translation, for example In Progress, Accepted or All

    You can also enter a search term in the search box to find strings that match the query.



  3. Start translating!

    (tick) A few tips:

    • Start with translations that are "In Progress"
    • A translation that is "In Progress" has been suggested by an automated translation.  
      • If the translation is correct, just vote for it and it will become the accepted translation.
      • If the translation is not correct, just click 'Retranslate' and provide the correct translation.
    • If you see a translation in an Atlassian product that is incorrect (e.g. JIRA):

    Would it be possible to expand on the instructions for both these options?

  1. Looking for how to customize your particular variation of a text, strings, translations?  Look here: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Customizing%20Text

  2. There is also a plugin currently in Beta release that allows you to translate most JIRA items on the fly: InProduct Translations.

    1. Thanks for the update.

  3. Thank you InProduct team this was very help to us.

  4. But i am confused does the changes reflect to everybody or just the one who changes the text ???

    1. Everyone with the same language selected can see the changed translation.

  6. Unfortunately I'm unable to use InProduct Translations plug-in on cloud hosting, which is not supported, what is the best solution and method available for same functionality in Cloud hosting?

    1. Hi,

      The only way to translate JIRA Cloud is to use our translation site at http://translations.atlassian.com.

      Please note that only selected number of languages are available for Cloud: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Language+Support+in+Atlassian+OnDemand
      If your language is not listed then you might want to vote following issue: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/AOD-7017

      Cheers,
      Jacek

  7. Seems like I can't find text from email notifications.

    For example: I just got a JIRA e-mail notification that said: "à ajouter un commentaire" and should be instead "a ajouté un commentaire" (added a comment).

    When I search for "added a comment" on translations.atlassian.com, I get the correct translation, but I think it's text from another location (from within the app and not the email notification).

    Can you help me correct this translation? Thanks!

    1. Hi Stephanie,

      I searched translations.atlassian.com for the incorrect French "à ajouter un commentaire" and it is listed only once for JIRA. It is not accepted and the correct accepted translations is "a ajouté un commentaire": https://translations.atlassian.com/dashboard/translate?lang=fr_FR#/11/0/undefined/ALL/ALL/%C3%A0%20ajouter%20un%20commentaire

      If you can still see the incorrect one in your emails then it probably means that your JIRA uses old translation pack. You can download the fresh one from https://translations.atlassian.com/dashboard/download and next upload to JIRA in the "Manage add-ons" section.

      Let me know if that solves the problem.

      Cheers,
      Jacek

  8. Adding ?i18ntranslate=on to the URL displays the message key name (id) of each label and text. This helps when searching for the correct entry at translations.atlassian.com. Learn more at Translations Made Easier. Example:
