Translation of readme doesn't update on

Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


I have a general problem with the readme translation of our plugins on 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 part of the FAQ is English. Or here the screenshot descriptions didn't update and are still English. Same for

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 :)

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