Translating user roles

edited July 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Is it possible to translate the roles of the users? This feature would be nice for a multi-language forum, although I could live with English-only role names.

    Roles only show when admins are changing user settings I think. I guess we could pass the names through translations, although since they can be user-generated it would be a pain to update the translations.

    I also just added a feature where you can search for users by role. I don't think that will ever use translations.

    The roles are actually displayed in user profiles as well, but that's the only place I could find them in my forum. I thought it was displayed beside the user names in discussions as well, but as they aren't it's ok for me if the roles are English-only.
