As of Koha 3.2.x, we are using Koha as a single language policy ILS where
marc bib tags, auth tags, policy descriptions are displayed in one language
only at an instance, as shown below with our Arabic Koha 3.2.3 installed,
where you will notice that in spite that the interface is in English
(Left-to-Right) orientation but marc fields tags and policy elements
descriptions are still displayed in Arabic.

marc Bibliographic tags:
marc Authority tags:
Branches Groups:

I know that the issue of having Koha supporting more than one language for
its marc fields tags and policy descriptive names in one instance has been
raised before, but until today we are not sure if something had been done
about or the issue is still in the pipelines for future Koha releases.
Please, does anyone know more about this issue ? I recall that I have read
in one of the Koha digest posts that a German Koha was built with English
and German infrastructure to allow using either language in all of its user
interface including marc tags and policy descriptive names. Thanks for any
guidance on this.
