Custom Localization Repository
YouTrack lets you localize the user interface even if your desired language is not available "out-of-the-box".
The Localization Tutorial explains how you can do it.
We created a YouTrack Custom Localization Repository in GitHub to collect custom translations of the YouTrack user interface and share them with the community. If you have created a custom localization for your YouTrack installation, you are welcome to contribute to the repository. Upload your files and submit a pull request!
To use a custom localization in YouTrack
- Download desired localization files.
- Add the new
supportedLocales.xmlfile in the following format:You can use
<localeEntry> <name><Your language name></name> <locale><locale_ID></locale> </localeEntry>
supportedLocales.xmlfile provided along with translations in the repository.
- Stop your YouTrack server.
- Check that your custom translated files are put in the correct directory with the
- Start YouTrack with the Java machine parameter
jetbrains.mps.webr.i18n.custom-translations, which points to the folder with custom localized files.
For example, if you run YouTrack as JAR file from the command line, the command should look something like this:
java -Djetbrains.mps.webr.i18n.custom-translations=/home/admin/youtrack-i18n -jar youtrack.jar 8080
If you run YouTrack as service on Windows or Unix-like OS, you must specify the
jetbrains.mps.webr.i18n.custom-translations parameter in your Java machine properties.
