Thanks, I do understand how i18n works for plugins. I should have asked if there is a way to do this without having to fork or modify the existing plugin. It seems like the answer is no.
Personally, I think this is a lacking feature of NodeBB.
Dear developers, we are from Chinese users, it is a big fan of NodeBB. However, we found that: NodeBB official Chinese forum "appalling." In this regard, we have initiated the idea to undertake NodeBB Chinese Forum in NodeBB CN QQ group.
I am here on behalf of China's NodeBB users, made several requests to the official:
We need cn.nodebb.org.
We need some official support, but most of the things we have done.
Server is responsible for our own.
i can't agree with more，we need a chinese forum of nodebb to discuss，but the cn.noodebb.org is not so good.
i hope the nodebb dev team could consider our requests.We will make NodeBB better!
