UI Localization

Translate the standard UI

To make collaboration and synchronisation easier, the English source locale from the dev branch is automatically imported to Transifex, a platform for collaborative translation.

For existing languages, you can sign up as a translator. For new languages, you can request the new language after signing up.

In either case you will be able to translate keys as they are added or changed in the source locale.

Translate your plugin

You can put locale files compatible with vue-i18n in a locales folder at the root of your plugin. They will be automatically loaded into the client when the project is opened. You can then use $t to translate strings in your components and other vue-i18n helpers. Also, the strings used in the UI API (like describeTask) will go through vue-i18n as well to you can localize them.

Example locales folder:


Example usage in API:

  // vue-i18n path
  description: 'com.my-name.my-plugin.config.foo'


Make sure to namespace the id correctly, since it must be unique across all plugins. It's recommended to use the reverse domain name notation.

Example usage in components:

<VueButton>{{ $t('com.my-name.my-plugin.actions.bar') }}</VueButton>

You can also load the locale files in a client addon if you prefer, using the ClientAddonApi:

// Load the locale files (uses vue-i18n)
const locales = require.context('./locales', true, /[a-z0-9]+\.json$/i)
locales.keys().forEach(key => {
  const locale = key.match(/([a-z0-9]+)\./i)[1]
  ClientAddonApi.addLocalization(locale, locales(key))
