I’ve just deployed a 100% complete translation of 3.1 for the first time, yet I’m still seeing a few English strings in the new Admin Bar. The offending strings are ‘Add New’ and ‘Edit My Profile’ (under the logged in user’s name) and unfortunately they’re in a highly visible location.
I’ve checked that both these strings have been translated in GlotPress and they seem to be present and correct. Here’s the string for Add New, for example. It’s located in wp-includes/admin-bar.php:198.
The translated strings also seem to be present and correct in the .po file that was generated at the same time as the live .mo file. It seems they’re just not being picked up by WordPress.
Any ideas? Have any other languages successfully translated ‘Add New’ and ‘Edit My Profile’ in the new Admin Bar?
I know that there are issues with the admin bar in the .COM translation (see here, but I can’t see how a homepage syncing issue would apply to .ORG too…
