The descriptive text is in English but my site is multilingual so I have added Dutch translations as well. The translations of single words or short sentences works fine, but longer text (e.g. three lines of text in a
) doesn't translate at all even if the English text and the translation is in a nl.po file, alongside of the shorter text.
It worked once, but now I don't seem to get it to work again. I did notice that the correct number of whitespace is vital, but I cannot find what to do to get it to work.
For clarification purposes, this works:
msgid "Calculate" msgstr "Berekenen" msgid "Have fun!" msgstr "Veel plezier!"
So on the Dutch version I see 'Berekenen' and 'Veel plezier!'
This doesn't work:
msgid "" "The units of the sizes are equal to the number you enter, i.e. if you " "enter the size in inches, the\n" " calculated sizes are also in " "inches." msgstr "" "De eenheden zijn gelijk aan de eenheid die u invoert, m.a.w. als u centimeters invoert, zijn de\n" " berekende maten ook in centimeters."
This is displayed as English on the Dutch page.
What do I need to do to make this work again?
And is there a more finegrained way than simply exporting everything to work with multilingual content in custom modules?
