Theoretisch kann man mehrere Adressbücher haben. Das eine (einzige) Adressbuch in diesem Fall trägt den Namen "Contacts".
Das ist schwierig zu internationalisieren, weil es nicht nur RoundCube, sonderen auch die darunter liegende Software betrifft.

Ist aber auf jeden Fall ein Bug.

@machniak
can we translate folder / addressbook names?

Kolab addressbooks are just folders, so users can rename them by themselves. It's also possible to have the folders in German by default on your own Kolab installation. We however do not have localization-dependent name for the "Contacts" folder.

@machniak
We are translating special mail folders like "Inbox" and "Sent".
Could we do the something similar for "Contacts" and "Calendar" ?
Otherwise we have incomplete localization in our Kolab/Roundcube installation.

Is this something that should discuss on bifrost?

Technicly we could do the same we do with special mail folders yes, but...

  1. Kolab allows subfolders and we often have "Contacts > Personal Contacts" folders too. Translating also this one would be problematic, as well as translating only it's parent.
  2. Roundcube/Kolab allows global (ldap) addressbook, it's name is also not localizable. So, again inconsistency.
  3. User can rename folders, so we'd need some more code to handle that properly for addressbooks and others (and e.g. implement use of the "show original folder names" preference).

So, I think that's why we do not localize the default contacts folder. Too much effort, but of course you can open a ticket to re-consider.
