#4497 closed enhancement (fixed)

Translate link only shows up after plugin is translated

Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: close 2nd-opinion


New plugins in the repository don't have the Languages: See all n link in the sidebar, because class-meta.php has that wrapped in a if ( $available_languages ) condition.

The unintended side-effect of that is that users have no way to know that they can translate the plugin, or where to go to do it.

If no translations exist, the link should still be shown, to encourage users to translate. Instead of, See all n, it could say something like Needs translation or something.

  • Keywords close 2nd-opinion added; good-first-bug removed
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

This is intentionally because the actual call to action for this is the banner (see attached screenshots) on the plugin page.

I'm going to second ocean's motion and close this. The plugin does prompt for translators (though it isn't apparent if the user's browser doesn't proffer additional supported languages). For such users (who are probably the most likely to be able to translate), the proposed sidebar addition would be a duplicative request.

We could offer the proposed sidebar addition if no translations are available AND the CTA translate banner isn't shown. I don't know that doing so be would be efficacious though.
