I'm using OJS 2.3.2-1 and I'm installing it for a brazilian journal.
This journal requires title and abstract, both in portuguese and english, for submitting articles. And all those four fields are required.
So I've started editing step3 form (classes/author/form/AuthorSubmitStep3Form), where I found the place for adding the checks for required fields. However, I realized that is not possible to add a check for a specific language. Then I tried adding locale support to the FormValidation, but my modification started to get bigger and bigger...
My question is: anyone have any plans for implementing validation checks for different locales?

Hi Fernão Lopes,
In OJS 2.3.3, there is now the option to allow submissions in multiple languages. If I remember correctly, Journal Managers can now specify which languages Authors can submit in. More information is available in a bullet here
. I don't think we currently have any plans on checking whether information has been added for mandatory fields for any *non-primary-language* locales -- that is, we'll always only check that the primary locale passes validation. Of course, if you can provide a use case we're more than happy to consider it as a feature request.
