We should come up with a way of allowing plugin templates to be translatable so installations using multiple languages can have the plugin displayed in the selected language.
I think this deserves more attention.
Plugins are a great way to add extra functionality to Koha, but by being non-translatable we invite forking instead of sharing and improving one version of the plugin together. I think a translation system is at this point much needed to move them further.
I think this should be seen as a bug in the current plugin implementation even.
I think this might help us:
Hi Kyle, this looks promising! I am not sure I can figure it out myself, any chance you could spend some time on a prototype?
Anyone want to work on this at the KohaCon19 hackfest? :-)
