Translate API: never return empty string for translation of "Continue"

Reported by: tobifjellner's profile tobifjellner Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: API Keywords:


The includes a translation of the string "Continue" that is used during selection of new language for a WordPress site. This string is fetched from the corresponding core/dev/admin translation of the string "Continue". Some locales, where the translation haven't been maintained for a while, were lacking a translation. In those cases the API was sending an empty string, which would then render as an empty button in the user interface.


My suggestion is that instead of patching this in Core, we should make sure that the API never sends an empty string as the translation of "Continue".

The API returns the translation of the string. If there is no translation no other string should be returned.
