    I am looking for Canada French.  Although I can provide a translation for most fields the field labels are still in English.  This won't pass the Bill 101 requirements in Quebec, Canada.  Fields like Search ideas, Trending etc...

    This is great news.  Are you looking at label and heading translation only or also contextual translation for the search engine?

    Let's face it, if someone submits an idea in a language you cannot read it's unlikely you are going to vote or comment on it.   Returning user entered data (title & description)  in the language of the user regardless of the language it was originally saved in would be desirable.  Otherwise you will never collect proper votes on all ideas and duplicates will persist.

    Is there any rough timing on the delivery of multi language?.

    Any timeframe for that feature (months or years)? A non localized portal is a major blocker for using the ideas portal in an enduser facing fashion.

    Must-have in the idea-portal to be able to professionally take advantage of the great customer-feedback and collaboration functionalitites which is one of the most valuable features of AHA! GERMAN-language required!

  • Stefan Hellpointner commented
    October 28, 2016 12:38

    We need a German translation of the idea-portal and it's processes.

    This is a great, on of the most valuable functionalitites to us (customer feedback & collaboration) and the English-German mixture (by using the branding functions) is not professional enough to our customer base. interface itself in english is OK!

  • Etienne Poulin commented
    November 15, 2016 21:40

    French would be necessary - most of our clients are either English or French speaking and we would be interested to give them both the portal in French at a minimum.

    I can only agree with my fellow German commentors, we also need a German translation of the idea-portal part. Interface itself in English is OK. English-German mixture (by using the branding functions) is not professional enough for our purpose. Too bad otherwise this would be the perfect tool.

  • Constance Martineau commented
    March 01, 2018 19:58

    This absolutely needs to get done... due to language laws in Quebec, we can't use the ideas portal until everything within the portal is translated into French. While we can set our own field labels for most things, there are hardcoded options that are only available in English. Is this something that will be coming? We are now 2018...

  • Martin Silbernagl commented
    April 28, 2018 14:26

    Or, for example, German :-)

  • Matthew Perkins commented

    We have just picked up Aha! and would be likely to integrate the ideas portal into our own customer portal to get ideas from our 130,000 customers, but need it in several major languages. What does the label likely to implement mean? Is there a timeframe associated with it?

  • Christoph H. commented
    June 11, 2018 13:33

    How about a self-translation option? Other companies solve this by allowing users to translate texts themselves and to upload their work to merge it with the results of other users. Collaborative translation!

  • Tony Sheehan commented
    November 13, 2018 19:00

    This is a showstopper for us.  Would have needed multi-lingual support for French and English.  This is preventing using Aha for the product planning and management of an enterprise-wide solution rollout.

  • Sarah Grzybowski commented
    November 26, 2018 18:29

  • Andre Adam commented

    English only product is preventing us from choosing Aha! as laws here forces us to use french as a work language whenever possible! 

  • Christian Nagel commented
    03 Jan 05:35

    I'm voting for German translation cause there will be many companies that like to use your tool. But to avoid mistakes in using the tool all day you need your parent language. So please start support the main languages at all.

    Hi there. We can see value in supporting other languages but this is not something that is currently planned on our roadmap. We hope you can understand. It is something that we will consider for the future so we will continue to use this idea monitor feedback and provide updates.

    As with many other this is a showstoper for us as most of our staff and all of our costumers speak only Spanish. That being said we would be willing to participate in a community effor tfor translation if that made things move along faster.

    How about a translation kit comparable to open source projects? Customers can help with the creation and customization. You provide the structure and users can edit and upload it themselves. Tested versions will be published. Costs and development time are significantly reduced?

    I hope you mean that you not only need to make few customization in the idea portal, but also in when you create a custom field you are able to enter different languages . It will be up to the idea layout when you chose which language to display.
