My company can finalize the french localization within 2 months, but only under one condition : please allow me to use www.bitrix.fr. I have a dedicated team in Madagascar. If you are still interested in, please contact me. I've had the opportunity to discuss with Stephen Ankenman in 2011. Please revert to him, he'll confirm.
I received an email about the availability of the French localization. Very good news Anyway, it is not very clear about the self-hosted version. Is it already translated too ? If no, what are your plans ?
Yana Prokopets, hello. can we expect also translation of the documents or it will be always through 3rd party apps? If I click on the "Facture" and then want to send it to the customer via email or download PDF - I would like it to be in French... Same for quotes. It doesn't make any sens to me - to add more apps, or host my data externally. This is I guess the only reason I'm not recommending bitrix to my boss nor to our partners/customers.
When I switch interface to French - all is fine. But then, if I click on "offres commerciales" or "factures" (quotes and invoices) and I wish to send/print a document - they are in English. I contacted your customer service, asking if it's possible to have these documents in French (logical, isn't it?) and got the reply:
This feature is not implemented but we have developer API which allows to create your custom module. You can contact our partners to request this feature http://www.bitrixsoft.com/partners/
So... Since you translate interface, but output (documents) is still in English and one needs to engage more resources to have it working - when approaching the boss, the answer is "no go for bitrix"
