../e107_plugins/tinymce4/plugins/compat3x/plugin.js:           (or in    plugin.min.js)  

..... settings.title = tinymce.i18n.translate((editor.settings.language || "en") .....



 lang = settings.language || "en";



"language": "en",

Thanks but unfortunately, after changes, all the time English

I do think the adjustments are correct, but after reviewing some files, i do miss the language files it should 'get' . (by file or folder). Looking in v1 there was a language js etc.. Because i am not a real tinyuser, but somewhat familiar with the system build, i (imo) do not believe, the present v2 version is handling multi lang. Github issue ??  Post overthere please, and/or wait for other comments...

Here is the solution:

Download latest wysiwyg.php file from here: https://github.com/e107inc/e107/tree/master/e107_plugins/tinymce4 and your tinymce4 language file: http://archive.tinymce.com/i18n/

Create a new folder in the /tinymce4/langs/pl.js directory

...and to change tiny template:
Remove double slashes from the line (wysiwyg.php):

// $ret['skin_url'] = e_PLUGIN_ABS.'tinymce4/skins/eskin';

Download skin from: http://archive.tinymce.com/download/plugins.php?tag=4

Rename selected template, for example:
$ret['skin_url'] = e_PLUGIN_ABS.'tinymce4/skins/tundora';

- Regarding language, this is a bug that has been resolved in the latest Github version and will be included in the 2.1.2 release.

- Changing the template is possible but not recommended because it may introduce new bugs. It is therefore hardcoded and not an option in the admin area at this point.

I have unfortunately come across the same problem when translating the en.js to swedish.
It's always english no matter what. I've tried every possible option. sv_SE.js(this should be the correct name) se.js or sv.js. I tried and changed language to slovak and then the tinymce4 changed language to slovak. So i have looked to see if there was something different with those files  but can't find any differences except the translation.

the js file is a bit tricky.

look in v2 PLUGIN tinymce..thesedays there is a secondary folder called 'langs' .next to languages.

I am not 100% sure, but (small team that translates for Dutch) DO carry a dutch (called nl.js) in THAT (langs) folder, together with the original english one.

Maybe you have to do that too for swedish  (name would be sv.js (or any other language)). When done please go to admin/database en run a Scan Plugin directories (that way it should 'refresh' content/commun. of plugin).

Hope it helps
 (do note: strictly using system files; no changed files as described above> from pack, added languages... (no more no less..it includes nl.js as it is part of the transl. pack next to the original en.js)
