Translation add-on is released in ZenTao 11.6+. Users can translate ZenTao in the language they want by using the Translation feature. Reference language is the language that the translation is referred to. After the translation is done, other users can review it. The translated language files can be exported and the information of the translator, the reviewer, and the review date and time will be included.


For security reasons, users can ONLY visit ZenTao with PORT NUMBER, if they want to use the Translation feature. For more explanation, click https://www.zentao.pm/book/zentaomanual/feature-limitation-translator-web-editor-246.html

1. Translate Home

You can check the number of all the items in ZenTao that need to be translated. On the left column of the page, the translated languages are listed; and on the right, listed the languages that are being translated. You can see the percentage of all the translation.

Click the icon to set whether the translated language needs to be reviewed.

If Review is On, the number of reviewed times, the review progress, and the Review button will show.

2. Add Language

Click Add Language, then the privilege to write will be checked. Follow the instructions and run the command lines.

Reference Languages are the built-in languages in ZenTao, namely simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese and English. For any language you add to ZenTao, you will not be allowed to change the Code for it. And all the letters in the code should be lower case.

3. Start to Translate

Click the Translate button, you can start translating.

Modules of ZenTao are listed. Click the Translate button and you will enter the page to translate. The items are listed in separate lines.

Click Save and the required authentication should be done for security reasons. Follow the instruction, and click OK.

The Status will be changed to Translated after you save it.

On the page of Translate Home, you will the updated information on the number of translated items and translation progress.

4. Review

Review can be started once there is any translated items. If Review is set Off, it is not required to review the translated items. 

You can either Pass or Reject the translation. Click Select All to batch review translated items. If click Reject, you can add rejection reasons. Hover the questions mark, and you will see the rejection reason.

You can check the translated language in ZenTao interface by switching to the language.

5. Export

Click Export on the page of Translate Home to export the translation as a .zip file.

Unzip the file and open it. You will the translation related information, such as translator, reviewer, and review time.


1. For security reasons, ZenTao Translate feature can only be used when the address is PORT NUMBER.

2. Unzip the exported file and copy the config and module folders to the corresponded folder in the ZenTao directory that you are actually using. Make sure that you back up your data before copy your translated file to the directory.
