Unfortunately, yes ... :(

I was wrong here, sorry ... :( Yifan imported from Litmus to 
MozTrap, not from TCM to MozTrap (see 
for further information).

Thank you in advance :)

You are not the only one ... ;) Petr mentioned in the old Moztrap 
thread, that they were looking for a volunteer to implement it, but 
I am not sure, if something happened there 
... :( If you want to read the whole thread, you can read it here: 
It starts a little bit below and is rather longish, so be prepared 
... ;)

Hm. I am not sure, if it is possible for MozTrap itself. A short 
search for "localization" on 
http://moztrap.readthedocs.org/en/1.0.X/userguide/index.html was not 
that, what I have hoped for ... :( Also 
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/MozTrap/Admin_Guide does not 
mention it ... :(

But that would be a hurdle for people, who are not able to read 
English ... :(

Thank you very much :) I am eager to test it then ... ;)
Have a nice evening
