Multi-language support

Versions (relevant - OpenSearch/Dashboard/Server OS/Browser):
OS: V2.3, OSD V 2.3, Docker, Chrome Version 106.0.5249.119

Describe the issue:
Does Dashboards support multiple languages via user selection or by locales?
I found this reference to the topic on git: [i18n] Internationalization · Issue #943 · opensearch-project/OpenSearch-Dashboards · GitHub

Honestly, I have not idea what to do with it.
I am trying get the dashboards in show in another language (French). Is there a file a provide with my desired translations? Never had to deal with multi-lingual before.

Docker image V 2.3

Relevant Logs or Screenshots:

Yes. Currently, we have a plugin (i18n plugin) to support multiple languages. Here is some instructions: i18n-plugin/ at main · opensearch-project/i18n-plugin · GitHub


So for French, it should be i18n.locale: "fr" . All the supported locales are here OpenSearch-Dashboards/locales.js at main · opensearch-project/OpenSearch-Dashboards · GitHub .

If your language is not currently supported, you are very welcome to create an issue and PR to contribute. Here is a reference:


Thank you. I will give it a try. Tied up on another project so it will be a while.
