Is it possible to display the name with different languages?

Dear Friends,

We used the OJS system (version 2.1.1) to host our first English Journal since last June. In last month we added another Chinese journal. With the well-organized structure and functions, these two journals run very well. Currently, there are many users registered both of these two journals. However, because their accounts were created when they registered with the first English Journal hosted, their names were displayed in English in the new Chinese Journal. Although it will not cause any problem for submitting manuscripts, the section editors might get troubles in selecting the reviewers for evaluating the paper. I wonder that is it possible to display the user name with different languages for different journals? Please give me any suggestion to try and test. Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

Hi Yaliang,

User profiles are currently only possible in a single language. We're working on extending OJS's multilingual capabilities (i.e. additional article and journal metadata in different languages), and I'll make a note to consider extending user profiles similarly. Unfortunately you'll have to find a work-around for the moment.
