I just committed a section to the translator manual addressing this.
Here is the text:
3.6 Special folders (Sent/Drafts/Trash) are not translated
This is intentional. Those folders may be special in content, but not
in name - they could be named anything, which is why SquirrelMail
cannot pretend to know what they will be named. In some cases, users
could already have folders with the desired translated name, which
would cause confusion.
You can take some steps to provide translated special folder names for
your users, but be careful about imposing translated folder names as
the administrator rather than letting users manage their folders
* The administrator can set what folders to use (for all users -
by default) for Trash, Drafts and Sent (you might want to ensure you
have a script on the mail server that creates pre-translated folders
for this purpose first) by using the SquirrelMail configuration script
(config/conf.pl, which is usually aliased to "configure" in the main
SquirrelMail directory) and choosing "3. Folder Defaults" and then
entering the utf7-imap encoded folder names for "3. Trash Folder", "4.
Sent Folder" and "5. Drafts Folder". You can also do the same by
directly editing config/config.php and changing the values for
$trash_folder, $sent_folder and $draft_folder.
* Users can go to Options->Folder Preferences and select what
folders to use for Trash, Drafts and Sent (they can create their own
pre-translated folders for this purpose on the Folders page first).
These settings will override the administrative settings described in
the item above.
* As of SquirrelMail 1.5.2, users can go to Options->Folder
Preferences and enable "Translate Special Folders", and SquirrelMail
will try to automatically translate folders named "Trash", Sent" and
"Drafts", but, as mentioned above, this can result in unexpected or
confusing results if the user has already created similarly-named
* The administrator can choose to set default values for (or force
the values of) the prior two user settings by using one of the methods
explained in the Administrator's Manual
