PKP Bugzilla – Bug 5598
allow for author names in multiple languages

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
Allow for author names (metadata) to be entered in multiple languages. This seems to have been requested many times (http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5060; http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4313&p=24442#p24442) and I thought that maybe I'd already added a feature request, but I can't find one.
Not only author names should be in multiple languages but also their affiliation
Regarding comment #1: Affiliations are already localized as per bug #5550 (since OJS 2.3.3).
*** Bug 6422 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
See additional info in #6422.
Reassigning to 2.3.7 due to another request.
Just a heads-up: this might well be too invasive for a stable release.

Thanks, Alec. It's been requested often enough though that even if it were available in -master (and potentially back-portable to -stable) I think a fair number of folks would be very happy.
Taking ownership as I have a patch for this, though it will need some work to get it into stable, and probably could use some polish.
Putting a link to my patch up and deferring to 2.4 (though it will likely be deferred again): https://github.com/mcrider/ojs/commit/52373a9bddd9527889787fa26590813e9b412c8e
This feature has been deferred for a long long time!
Do you have a version in mind that may have resolved this bug?
This hasn't yet been prioritized for a specific release, but I'd say it's very unlikely to be implemented for OJS 2.x; it'll become a higher priority after OJS 3.0 is released.
