Multilanguage support for custom fields
it would be great to have some multilanguage support for custom field through.
Currently, if I'm using one redmine installation for my product which has 3 countrys with 3 different support-hotlines, I need to define my custom fields in 3 languages and associate them to three single projects.
If I could have the abbility to translate every custom field, it would be possible to create one project, with each custom field as single defined field with different translations, which would be identified by the userpreferences.
If no translation is found, the server should take the english translation (for example if french isn't defined, just take english).
The other option would be to define the custom field name as default translation, and add different translations per language.
Just one example.
Custom field: Customer (free text, used as default if no other language translation is found.
Translation for this field:
If some customer selects the new ticket field and has the preference de, he just sees "Kunde". If he selects new ticket with fr as prefrence, he get's the default - nontranslated custom field name - "Customer".
In my opinion, this would be very helpful to create a realy full l18n support in Redmine!
What do you think about this?

I am facing same issue on our instance. We are working with an offshoring development / coding team and clients are located in Germany. Not all clients do like or understand English in Germany.
Coders and internal staff can handle English but translation would be smart and helpful.
