I cannot make the module translation strings to be considered, unistalling and installing the module again.

Is the indicated .po relative path correct?

in my module blockForm function i have :

  $form['retrieval_method'] = array(
    '#type' => 'fieldset',
    '#title' => $this->t('Retrieval Method'),
  );

my .info.yml

name: 'amu hal'
type: module
description: display publications from HAL
core: 8.x
version: 8.x-3.0
package: AMU
project: 'amu_hal'
interface translation project: amu_hal
interface translation server pattern: modules/amu_hal/translations/%language.po

and in

/sites/mysite/modules/amu_hal/translations/fr.po :

msgid "Retrieval Method"

msgstr "Méthode d'extraction"

i have activated the core interface traduction module and the

/fr/admin/reports/translations

tells me Missing translations for 11 projects:

amu hal (8.x-3.0). File not found at modules/amu_hal/translations/fr.po

    wrap the keys in single quotes – user21641 Sep 5 '18 at 12:56
  • which keys ? this: interface translation project: 'amu_hal'. Does not change – Matoeil Sep 5 '18 at 13:07

    The keys are on the left, so 'interface translation project': amu_hal, for example – Clive Sep 5 '18 at 13:29
  • which ones then ? because if i wrap them all, the module is not listed in the extend interface – Matoeil Sep 5 '18 at 13:53

    Does it help to read the documentation - api.drupal.org/api/drupal/… – hansfn Sep 5 '18 at 14:23

Thanks to comments and doc , i have moved the whole module in modules/custom/ and for info file:

name: 'amu hal'
type: module
description: display publications from HAL
core: 8.x
version: 8.x-3.0
package: AMU
project: amu_hal
'interface translation project': amu_hal
'interface translation server pattern': modules/custom/amu_hal/translations/amu_hal-%language.po

Placing the po file at

modules/custom/mymodule/translations/mymodule-fr.po

now i could update the translation at

/fr/admin/reports/translations

and make string translations

Note that the same po file is not found if the module is placed in sites/mysite/module

    public:// means file upload directory, usually .../sites/default/files/..., I've successfully used a relative path from web root in my own module: modules/custom/MY_MODULE/translations/MY_MODULE-%version-%language.po – Hudri Sep 5 '18 at 15:50
