Is there already a French translation for Splunk available?


To Translate my Splunk app into French following the advice in: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.2/AdvancedDev/TranslateSplunk
I noticed that Splunk is not available in French.
My translated message.po wont work if there is not a French translation for Splunk.
Surely I am not the first person to want Splunk in the French language. Is there already a French translated message file available?

Since Version 6.1.3, Splunk is now available in French translation, automatically applied if your web browser is configured to use French by default

From what I can see (in $SPLUNK_HOME/splunk/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/appserver/mrsparkle/locale), in version 5.0.3, the available languages are:

  • de_DE (German)
  • en_US (US English)
  • en_UK (UK English)
  • it_IT (Italian)
  • ja_JP (Japanese)
  • ko_KR (Korean)
  • zh_CN (Simplified Chinese)
  • zh_TW (Traditional Chinese)

I would suggest filing an enhancement request (read: support case) asking for French language localization.


I already noticed the available languages did not include French. So supported by your suggestion, I filled a enhancement request.
