FAQ

Can I translate content?

No, this is cur­r­ent­ly not pos­si­ble. But on our road­map though.

A specific text is not found, what can be the reason?

Collec­ting trans­la­ti­ons might be dis­ab­led. Try enab­ling it and rel­oa­ding the spe­ci­fic page.

Or, that text was “hard­coded” and not using the inter­nal loca­li­za­ti­on pro­ces­sor. If this is a text direc­t­ly from Atlassian you may ask Atlassian sup­port for this, if this is a text from a spe­ci­fic add-on, you may ask the add-ons ven­dor.

What can we do for you?

Plea­se pro­vi­de us infor­ma­ti­ons about con­text whe­re the pro­blem occurs. e.g. con­tent tools under space con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on
