Referring to this post: today I tried building nn_NO from RosettaRosetta The code name of the theme for the local WordPress sites (eg. is a “Rosetta” site). All locale specific WordPress sites are referred to as “Rosetta sites.” The name was inspired from the ancient Rosetta Stone, which contained more or less the same text in three different languages. without using revision numbers (project 3.1 and 3.1.x). I get an error message (“invalid revision”). That probably means that I have to look up revision numbers every time I want to build a new nn_NO release, which is a slight annoyance and a source of error. Why do I have to do it?

More seriously, the current nn_NO translations are broken, although all stringsString A string is a translatable part of the software. A translation consists of a multitude of localized strings. in The platform for contributing to the translation of WordPress core, themes and plugins. are translated. Scrutiny reveals that all strings the .po filesPO files PO files are human readable files which contain translations we use. These files are not used by WordPress itself. Each language will have its own PO file, for example, for French there would be a fr_FR.po file, for german there would be a de_DE.po, for British English there might be en_GB.po. in an update, and in a fresh download, are fully translated. The .mo filesMO files MO, or Machine Object is a binary data file that contains object data referenced by a program. It is typically used to translate program code, and may be loaded or imported into the GNU gettext program. This is the format used in a WordPress install. These files are normally located inside .../wp-content/languages/, on the other hand, contain only 828 translations. There is something wrong, and I can’t find out what. I’d be thankful if anyone would care to look at The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. and examine the language files to confirm the problem, and find out how I get fully translated .mo files.
