Localisation of Custom Field Values

Postby angermanager » Jun 08, 2017 8:17 am

Hello everyone,

we are using the mantis bugtracker for quite some time now. Our company has grown since then. Originally we had only native speakers (german) but we've recently got some english speaking colleagues. We are now facing the problem that many of our custom fields have german values but the new guys don't understand them. Are there any solutions how to localize the values of a custom field? I've already tryed some database and code changes but didn't achive a satisfactory result yet. I know that I am not asking for something trivial - at least since I've tried it!

An example of a custom field value:
Code: Select all

We would like to have the possibility to save different values depending on the selected language.

best regards

This is a known feature request, see https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=20305 and related issues.

It's not a small and simple change, but can become a challenge, especially when thinking about upgrading old installations and the way custom field values are stored at the moment.
