I would like to import an translation file *.po. When I import it, I become the error: "For security reasons, your upload has been renamed to bootstrap-all.de_.po." and "Error message File upload error. Could not move uploaded file."

Could anyone help?

  • Whatever UI you're using needs to be updated to allow .po as a valid extension - could you explain in detail how you're running the import?

  • I try to import the file in the Interface translation /admin/config/regional/translate/import. Then I choose the file "bootstrap-all.de.po"

Try this:

  • Go to admin/config/media/file-system page
  • Set Temporary directory field to sites/default/files/temp
  • Save changes


  • Check that sites/files is writable.
