Subject Controversial topic: Remove internationalization
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2018 16:31:13 GMT

Currently we provide ability to translate JMeter GUI in many languages.
In our tests we only ensure French translations are available because we
have french team members.

For other languages, we are in best effort and most probably the UI looks
non professional for many users as there will be a mix of english and non
english labels.

I am aware that it's a controversial topic and many people probably rely on
translated GUI BUT:

   - I dislike the fact that GUI looks non professional
   - Why don't we have more translation contributions if they are used ?
   - It's a certain piece of work to maintain and create those translations

So unless there is a magical way to fully translate all labels and maintain
them efficiently, I am  in favor of:

   - Having english forced in setup instead of relying on default locale.
   It seems this happened accidentally in 3.3 and nobody complained about it.
   - In a second step, and unless there is a big move to help on
   translation, I propose to drop all languages, even french one as it's an
   additional work and we have other and a lot of things to do

Thoughts :-) ?
