I have created a date field in user account fields. In manage form display, I have selected Select list as widget.

I want to translate the month names which is displaying a select list.

I checked it here admin/config/regional/translate and in config translation admin/config/regional/config-translation but I don't see any option to translate it.

Is there anything I am missing. Is it possible to translate the month names in the date select list?

  • but I don't see any option to translate it have you attempted to see that page in the other language? New strings for translations won't get picked up unless you load the page in a diff language first.

  • Yes, I am on the registration page, where that field appears. I reloaded the page several time. But in the interface translation when I search for a month, I can only see this March In Context: Long month name

Enable the "Language" & "Interface Translation" modules. Then download the translation .po file on https://localize.drupal.org and import it in /admin/config/regional/translate/import

  • Downloaded the po file for project drupal core and imported it. But still I am seeing the month names in English.
