As an archivist or user I would like to select the language of the staff user interface by selecting an option within the interface


Right now the language/translation for the interface labels is set in the configuration file. Though I would still want there to be a default translation, I would like for users to be able to change the language they see on the fly.

is working on a selection process in the browser for the public interface and has a branch for a process using user/repo/global preferences for the staff interface.

Hi everyone,

We here at the University of Amsterdam would also like the users of our PUI to be able to switch between languages (Dutch and English) for all the visible field labels.

Is there already more news about this request?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

There's a fix in for the staff interface side of this. Because the mechanism is completely different, we're splitting the public side off into a different issue (), but hope to work on that soon as well.

This works, but sometimes (I can't discern a pattern) requires 2 clicks of the save button on the user preferences to take.
