BuddyPress language pack upgrade "freshness"

Reported by: imath's profile imath Owned by:

Component: Translate Site & Plugins Keywords:



I'm a bit worried about the different messages i've read in forums or i've heard in some of my discussions with french people concerning the internationalization of BuddyPress since 2.1 (People are uninstalling 2.1 to come back to 2.0.3).

Since 2.1, BuddyPress rely on the language packs that are automatically updated. At first sight this seems to work fine as an update message is appearing in Dashboard and the "Update Plugin translations" shows, and a language pack ( in my case) is downloaded once the button is clicked on.

So we get the po/mo files but strings are incompletely translated. For the french translation the dev version on is at 100%.

So i've directly downloaded the french po file from the and compared it to the one i get using the auto upgrade feature and i've compared them :

As you can see the file you get using the auto upgrade feature has a revision date set to april 16th, although the one on has a revision date set to october 4th.

Now if i get the mo file from and place it in WP_LANG_DIR/plugins/ to replace the one the auto upgrade is grabbing, then all strings are translated.
