Siwtching interface language results in mixed langauges



I downloaded and installed the latest version in German. Since the KB, blogs, etc all seem to be in English I figured it would better if the interface was in English as well so it would be easier to find things when looking at the doc. After switching the language and restarting, some things are in German, some are English and some are mixed:

Warning by lookup value 'No' in channel 'Vertrauenswürdige Stammzertifizierungsstelle'

I have cleared the cache and used a different language, but I still have both languages. From my perspective this is a huge bug.

Is there anyway to configure the system so that language is user dependent? We have customers in several European countries and would like the interface in their respective language or English if there's is not available.

Hello there,

Changing the language will only affect the GUI of PRTG. Created sensors or channels will not be translated, since the name of channels and sensors could be defined individually. Translating these names will lead to errors.

Individual language for different users is not possible. For this there is a feature request. You can upvote if you are interested in multiple languages in PRTG.

Kind regards

That make sense if the sensors are created before the language is switched.
