Localizing Kibana for the Global Language Landscape

IBM and their customers identified the support for multiple languages localization as a key capability needed in Kibana in all visualization dashboards.

In this talk, Martin and Shikha will describe the key aspects of Kibana globalization from design to capability delivered, as well as some of the design journey they took to get there. They will also provide the integration points for localization engineers who wish to add support for a particular language and plug-in authors adding or modifying Kibana plug-ins.

It is an exciting journey not to be missed in the growth of Kibana and the Elastic Stack.
