      Is it possible to make GlotPress dashboard a little bit more useful? Like showing active projects and their statuses to validator like this: http://imgur.com/Bh2Kg1x

      It’s hard to track all the projects. I have to check every project to see if there is new or waiting translations. Just WordPress Core has 6 active projects (3 themes, WordPress, Administration and Network). There is mobile projects, plugins etc. It’ll be a handy feature if implemented.

        Version 3.9-fr_FR shipped with a set a bad strings (slippery fingers, honest mistake, but still). I compiled a new archive with the corrected strings, but how can I make sure the translation files are getting pushed to users who have already upgraded to 3.9?

          Been there, done that….

          We made a post telling people that the package was rebuilt and people needed to update again.

          The ones who were about to complain, did the update.

          What happened to the silent others still remains unknonw to us 🙂

          Unfortunately this does not fix the bug in the thousands separator

          Since Saturday, April 19, 2014, the bug is fixed while yesterday, the same files had a bug.
          This is not to understand anything. What have you changed?
          Finally, the better!

          • Xavier Borderie 9:11 am on April 22, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            I changed the translation file to replace the non-breaking space with simple space character (” “).
            I would have removed the spacing altogether, but GlotPress does not allow empty translations.

          Noticed a bug (?) while editing translation of BuddyPress here https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/buddypress/dev/ru/default

          Not all untranslated strings are showed. How did I found that:
          1) went through all untranslated strings,
          2) exported the po file of everything ru_RU
          3) opened in Poedit and noticed that some strings appeared to be untranslated, although they are not listed under Untranslated filter in GlotPress.
          4) translated them in Poedit and imported into GlotPress
          5) got the message that 16 new strings were translated.

          So in general – untranslated strings were not showing under Untranslated filter in Glotpress.

          • Sergey Biryukov 10:41 am on March 10, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            Hmm, I currently see 40 untranslated strings there. When I export the .po file and open it in Poedit, I see the same 40 untranslated strings (out of 1397).

          • Slava UA 10:46 am on March 10, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

            Perhaps because I have already fixed that 🙂 Those 40 should stay there. When I was operating – thos 16 were not in glotpress.
            It was easy to track, as they all are short strings (like Notifications %s), while those 40 are quite long strings.

            If some of you know I’m working on GlotPress and since it’s getting more activity I would love to setup a biweekly meeting. If you would love to help out by sharing ideas or maybe contributing back then please leave a message at http://blog.glotpress.org/2014/02/28/since-we-gain-a-bit-more-activity-lately/.

                There is still not 3.8 project for WP in GlotPress. When correcting a typo in 3.8.x, should I use 3.7 or Trunk?

                • Kenan Dervisevic 12:20 am on January 26, 2014 Permalink | Log in to Reply

                  Use dev (trunk). 3.8.x in Rosetta is actually dev from GlotPress.

                  I agreen this is a bit confusing right now…!

                  In my opinion this is not a good workflow and confusing for any international dev/ webmaster/ translator/ contributor.

                  I would expect to now have WordPress 3.8.x project as like 3.7.x — also the development version (Trunk) should have already switched to the 3.9.x codebase so to say Trac/ Trunk.

                  That would make it much more clearer.

                  I thought it was already synced but monitoring the GlotPress the last few weeks I see it’s not…

                  Hi there. I have a few questions and issues that we’re trying to sort out over at vi.wordpress.org and

                  1. On sites like http://ja.wordpress.org and http://es.wordpress.org there are welcome sections that I cannot figure out how to add into the Vietnamese site. There are only two users on the site right now, and we’re both Editors, and I’m not sure how page templates and/or front page content is set. Can you point me to some information on this?
                  2. Do you have a list of validators for Vietnamese, or is there somewhere I can see it? The validators for the language at the moment should be me (philiparthurmoore), Tran Ngoc Tuan Anh (fitwp), and Buy Huy Thang (gsmeanspro). I thought I could control this from within the vi.wordpress.org Dashboard under Users, but it doesn’t seem to be related.
                  3. We’re planning on creating a P2 for Vietnamese translators to chat with each other. Is there anything in place on the .org side of things to facilitate this directly on the .org site for Vietnamese or should I instead just set up a P2 elsewhere? I’m fine with either solution.

                  Thanks in advance!

                    1. You should have a page with the slug ‘/txt-welcome’ (default template), that’s the one. You can create it, if it isn’t there.
                    2. http://wpcentral.io allegedly has a complete list of validators. Other than that I can check, but not right now, as I need to proxy to .org to do that.
                    3. It’ll have to be outside .org, for the moment

                    Any news on the string count issue from last year’s thread: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/2012/05/29/i-am-using-poedit-for-testing-localization-and/#comment-13497 — The issue is still there for the main .pot file (for example de_DE.po). GlotPress here https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp/dev says there are 1782 strings, but when I do a .po file export for any language from there my .po file always only has 1759 strings.

                    Still no reason why this is and what’s causing it? In last year’s comment thread @sergeybiryukov mentioned a list of different strings. What are those different strings this time for 3.8

                    Thanks for any help with that, really has me going nuts these days…! Also pinging @nacin and @nbachiyski for any ideas. THANKS!

                      J’ai passé un bon moment à revoir, corriger, uniformiser et améliorer la consistance de la traduction de bbPress
                      Mais je ne sais pas comment valider les modifications?

                      Je connais bien d’autres systèmes de traduction tels que Transifex avec lequel j’ai traduit en français Disqus, pUpload et Elgg.org, mais GlotPress? comment obtenir les droits de relecteur?

                        I spent a good time to review, correct, standardize and improve the consistency of the translation of bbPress, but I do not know how to validate the changes?

                        I know many other translation systems such as Transifex with which I translated into French Disqus, pUpload and Elgg.org but GlotPress? how to get permission to proofread?

                        Thank you to the entire community

                        Dear Emmanuel,

                        as far as I know the Polyglot group consists of a bunch of more experienced users that have been given status as Validators. They check translation proposals and acknowledge when they feel the translation to fit the needs. Don’t ask me though how they get elected as Validators. I haven’t found any information on that before. (With which I don’t want to question the selection process – I just don’t know myself how it works.)

                        Hola!, Muchas gracias por su respuesta!

                        Sorry, I saw a big “Welcome, polyglots!” upon landing on this page this morning, et voilà 😉

                        Anyway, special thanks fly to pixolin, a real polyglot, who managed to find a way to understand an extremly seldom language spoken by forum intruders only :)))

                        Well, go ahead, your time is precious; then the key is:
                        “They check translation proposals and acknowledge when they feel the translation to fit the needs.”

                        So, the little eman shouln’t worry; don’t worry, be happy, theses hours are not lost,
                        A Validator will put his hat, a wonderful pair of magnifying glass, and double-check what’s been douvle-checked 😉

                        Life’s good, and for sure we all are heading to a better world

                        Bonne journée à tous, et amusez-vous bien!

                        Parles-tu d’améliorer la cohérence de la traduction dev sur translate ?
                        Je viens de valider les 137 chaînes en attente, dont les 40 tiennes. Merci beaucoup !

                          En passant, j’ai fait de nombreuses corrections ici et là dans tes propositions : typographie, pluriels, cohérence (“We’re all abuzz” traduit en “” à un endroit et en “” à un autre), anglicismes, oublis, etc. Il faudra un jour revoir ensemble plus profondément la traduction de bbPress.

                          Et il faudra moi que je rédige ce guide de la traduction FR que j’ai en tête depuis si longtemps 🙂

                          Bonne journée !

                            Oui, plein d’incohérence, mais ça, imho, c’est
                            typique à WP, tout son historique est là…

                            > traduit en “” à un endroit et en “” à un autre

                            oui, et c’est pénible tous ces » ces ' et autres…
                            ça rend le tout illisible au possible…
                            encore des raisons historiques, car aujourd’hui,
                            plus besoin de ça pour faire des jolis accents é è ï ò
                            WP est en UTF-8 et tout va bien.

                            Y moyen de tout remplacer automatiquement, mais
                            après, comment rà importer ça dans https://translate.wordpress.org/ ?

                          BuddyPress en fait

                          Oui, quelques chaînes sur bbPress, mais je voulais parler de BuddyPress

                          Fondamentalement, quand on trouve des chaînes pas encore traduites dans
                          une version précédente, ça sert encore à qqn de les traduire?

                          Et la branche dev, elle est DEJA fusionnée avec son ascendante I suppose,
                          donc on peut se lancer sur les chaînes non traduites

                          Orginazed or not? 

                          At times I don’t think things work to good here @ polyglots. Very much feels disorganized and poorly thought through, which then confuses us who translate and create local packages. Especially since we went from SVN to GlotPress.


                          Can we please have a new Development (trunk) project @ glotpress

                          When 3.6 was released someone renamed the current dev project to 3.6.x without creating any new dev project. If we are to move to GlotPress and phase out SVN, things has to work better.

                          I’ve pointed this out several times, but unfortunately nothing has changed. When we use SVN, we can, in a sense manage tags/branches ourselves, something we can’t do with GlotPress. We are instead dependent on someone taking care of the projects. When 20 days goes by with no response to your request you lose the will to even try.

                          I even tried to contact the core team via IRC, the third attempt nacin replied, quite vague:

                          I’ve seen the thread. There will be a 3.7 project once it makes sense.

                          Firstly, if a request is read, leave a message, I do not have Jedi mind powers. Secondly, when it makes sense to whom? Sorry, but It feels like everyone does as they themselves find fit at the time, not a good way to get things organized…

                          There are already new strings for 3.7. Some of us want to work at our own pace and not get all strings at once. Suppose also that a language team wants to review parts of the translations for the upcoming version without involving sub versions aka have access to a development version. Shouldn’t it be possible (just like core)? We should be able to have the ability to organize and plan within our team, without technical limitations. Right now GlotPress is such limitation, at least as long as you have to chase people to get answers to questions/requests that we should be able to ask right here.

                          This is exactly what I said would happen when discussions about GlotPress came up. GlotPress was and is not ready for this type of project. I think GlotPress can be really good and I will say nothing about evolution that occurs with GlotPress (some are doing a really good job with the updates of the software). GlotPress should be a plugin that the teams could operate ourselves on the local sites. It would solve a lot of problems, it would be ready when a local site is set up, and we would be able to manage all projects and users within the teams, in one place.

                          You may think I’m just ranting, let it be so. When it comes to projects and computers, I am extremely organized, sometimes maybe too organized (if you can be?).

                          Polyglots, the use of GlotPress and creation of packages need to be reviewed and organized!

                            This has nothing to do with GlotPress or its abilities.

                            Rather, please accept that WordPress core is in a holding pattern. This is in part because of a number of changes to how WordPress is being developed. (As you may note, the POT files haven’t been updated, either.) WordPress 3.6.1 will be out soon, after which I will ensure there is a 3.7 project again. There have been very few string changes so far in 3.7. You’ll have at least a month to get through them.

                              @nacin any updates on this? I can see that you posted preliminary release dates on core. Dates that would put us as language teams in a pretty bad position. Just as core, we don’t want to rush things.

                              I hope the string freeze is not ignored for 3.7, especially considering that the time frame is shortened anyway. Unless we’re talking about like 4-5 strings that are updated/added.

                          • Marko Heijnen 4:37 pm on September 4, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

                            I can understand the main point that Mattias is making. If a trunk project will not be created then it should be posted on this P2. The changes that are now made now are not known to most of the people and there isn’t much to find about what will be changed.

                          • Mattias Tengblad 4:51 pm on September 4, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

                            @nacin I’m pretty annoyed at how some things work here, but it is not directed against any particular person. You might accidentally have ended up in the line of fire. Harassing you (if that is how you feel) was not my intention.

                            For the future, posting the information you just posted in an answer on my original post would make sense and explain a lot. When you don’t get a response in 20 days, it feels like you are being ignored.

                            Last, It is kind of disappointing that you do not see the points I am trying to raise.

                              Currently I’m the only active administrator/validator for galician language (gl_ES). I wish to relieve this activity and let others to engage in administrative tasks. For now, we have a volunteer, which currently is the most active performing translations.

                              I added this user, @egalego, as Editor on Galician Rosseta site: http://gl.wordpress.org

                              I don’t know if it is necessary to grant access elsewhere, as the svn repository or the codex. I leave this in the hands of administrators.

                                I’d like to add a plugin to https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins . It is already properly localized and translated in italian and it would be great to use a tool like glotpress to keep the translation updated and attract new contributors.
                                Is it possible?
                                The plugin is https://wordpress.org/plugins/weblibrarian/

                                  The plugins in that GlotPress project are currently only handpicked ones that are closely related to WP. Perhaps setting up a GlotPress installation for yourself is a solution that could work for you?

                                    Yes, I already use a translation system and it is ok. I was just looking for a way to attract more translators and thought that http://translate.wordpress.org could have been a good place for that.

                                      I’m hoping that someday there will be one solution that suits us all, but for now running your own solution works best.

                                        Hi Remkus, sorry that I use this old thread for my message, but it’s 100% related.
                                        After your presentation last month in Nijmegen I was looking for the form to submit my own plugin to GlotPress. Does the GlotPress project still handpick the translation projects or is there a (new) way to apply?

                                          As of now, there’s no way to opt in to using the WordPress GlotPress (that is, translate.wordpress.org). But in the not-too-distant future, we should have all plugins in the plugin repository added to GlotPress and available for translation.

                                    I need to know which locale you’re talking about. Be it as it may, you should always contact the current language team first.

                                      Dear Ze, Sorry for not mentioning the language name its Kannada. Language code kn. We don’t have a big team here. We are around three people working around translations and none of us have got the validation rights as of now. Please help us with this.

                                        Ok, we need to prepare everything for Kannada, could you read this and prepare a request, so that we can get that going? Thanks.

                                            Ze, I have put a request for Rosetta site. I think its already there atm. We have started translating strings for the same. I shall keep posting updates as and when we progress. Thanks in advance.
