#3169 closed defect (fixed)

Translation of readme doesn't update on wordpress.org

Reported by: vanvox Owned by: tellyworth
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


I have a general problem with the readme translation of our plugins on wordpress.org. If I translate the readme after releasing a new version, it doesn't update completely. Parts of the readme remain English even if we translate to 100%.
For example here https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/agb-connector/#description part of the FAQ is English. Or here https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/woo-paypalplus/#description the screenshot descriptions didn't update and are still English. Same for https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/backwpup/.

I asked in the polyglots channel and @danieltj recommended to open a ticket here.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added

Hi, just to provide some extra detail on this as well. I've checked other plugins such as WooCommerce which have been translated (at least for the strings in question) and that too is still not translated. Seems as if they're not getting pulled through/switched over for the screenshots.

@tellyworth and I have written the above patch which adds a daily cron that fetches translations from GlotPress and stores the translated plugin title and description in each plugin's post meta.

The ideal solution would be to perform this sync every time that GlotPress is updated, but this is a good stop-gap solution for now.

@dd32 — would you mind looking over this?

@noisysocks That looks fine to me, untested though :)

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

This seems to work now. Probably fixed by [6701] and/or [6721].

In 7478:

Plugin dir: sync translated content to postmeta. Props @noisysocks

This runs the Translation_Sync cron job periodically.
