This bundle allows you to modify most translated contents in Kimai to your business needs.

Often companies want to change some wordings in Kimai to better match it to their industry or usage of Kimai. One of the most requested modifications in Kimai is to change “Customers” to something else (eg. “Client”, “Construction site”, “Family”). Now this is as simple as searching for the text to replace and then setting your preferred translation.

You can replace messages, form labels, menu items and many more into one or multiple language. It comes with a new “Translation” view to manage these changed translations.

What can be changed

Visible elements like form labels, headings, menu items, error messages, and many more can be changed.

The text from the following “domains” cannot be changed:

  • Security (Login, Password forgotten)
  • Names of export templates, invoice number-generators, invoice calculators and invoice renderer
  • You cannot create translations for currently not existing “keys”

Bestanden kopiëren

Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:


The file structure needs to look like this afterwards:

├── TranslationBundle
│   ├── TranslationBundle.php
|   └ ... more files and directories follow here ...

Cache wissen

After uploading the files, Kimai needs to know about the new plugin. It will be found once the cache was re-built. Call these commands from the Kimai directory:

How to reload Kimai cache

bin/console kimai:reload --env=prod

It is not advised, but in case the above command fails you could try:

rm -r var/cache/prod/*

You might have to set file permissions afterwards:

Adjust file permission

You have to allow PHP (your webserver process) to write to var/ and it subdirectories.

Here is an example for Debian/Ubuntu (to be executed inside the Kimai directory):

chown -R :www-data .
chmod -R g+r .
chmod -R g+rw var/

Database aanmaken

Run the following command:

bin/console kimai:bundle:translation:install

This will create the required database tables and update them to the latest version.


Updating the plugin works exactly like the installation:

  • Delete the directory var/plugins/TranslationBundle/
  • Execute all installation steps again:
    • Bestanden kopiëren
    • Cache wissen
    • Update database with bin/console kimai:bundle:translation:install
