Translation Error in Italian
Good evening Heid and welcome back!
First off, I would like to apologize for the delay answering.
We are currently experiencing a higher level of requests than usual.
Please rest assured that we are working hard at correcting this situation.
We appreciate your patience while we try to normalize things.
Thank you for reaching out to us.
We are sorry to hear about that the Italian translation is not working as it should.
I would love to help you with this topic.
When translation file strings are not kicking in, it is usually caused by one of the following things:
- Your translation files are not up to date
- You are using some customized translation files that have been placed in the /wp-content/languages/ or /wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder. These might not be updated and will override any other file.
- The strings are translated, but are considered “fuzzy”
In the first 2 cases, the solution is to update your translation files using the pot file. You can do this by using the Poedit software and heading to Catalog > Update from pot file.
In the last case, you will need to make them “unfuzzy” using Poedit.
The other thing that might be happening is that the italian translation files need fixing.
I highly recommend reading the two following articles on translation:
This should enable you to submit a fix for the mistake. This way everyone can benefit from your fixes.
In fact, we offer free licenses as an incentive to those that help complete translation of our plugins in their language.
