Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/19457

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    profile.module
 Category:     bug reports

The idea is that the locale module should handle these translations, but
since these are site specific, they should not be exported with the
other strings when generating PO files from the site (at least not by
default), and that the translation should be integarated to the admin
interface (ie. some indication on the profile field name, mission
statement, etc. input fields, that those are translateable, and some
links pointing to the exact place).

The name of profile fields are not translateable, so they always appear
in english in the user profile page.

Confirmed, I experience the same here.

As it is discussed elsewhere, admin specified text is not translateable
yet in Drupal, and this is generally true, like you cannot translate
the site slogan or the user welcome message you specified or the
flexinode type names and field names, or the admin specified menu item
names. This needs some general solution, and noone provided one yet...

for something like a mission statement, i wuold think we could just t()
that variable and be done with it. these sorts of strings will need to
be translated via the web interface, and not the PO editor ... I have
never done a translation, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt.
