Using kickstart 2-rc4 I seem to miss some Dutch translations (I used the 2.x translation file).


If 'Add a product' ('Voeg een product toe') is translated, then why would 'Manage products' not be translated? The Dutch .po file does indeed not contain a translation for this, but it seems weird, if you would translate the one, why not translate the other?

Am I doing something wrong here?

You can try importing the translation file again; it is possible that the connection timed out and that some of the translations were not inserted.

However, if you check the .po file and you can't find the translations of those strings - it means that whoever was translating the terms did not finish them all.

You can translate missing terms yourself within Drupal at admin/config/regional/translate/translate or download Poedit and contribute translations back here.

  • The .po file does not contain the missing translations, so a time out is not likely, also I would see a time out in my browser right? I am going to write translations if they really aren't available. But it seems rather strange that the one string is translated and the other not

  • It's then up to the person who did the translation. All translations are contributed just like the modules/themes, so noone can guarantee that everything will be done correctly/completely. Commented Nov 26, 2012 at 14:56
