Breadcrumb NavXT
Existing translation do not show (10 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm using the last version of the plugin, which includes .po & .mo French files (checked them: translation looks pretty good).

    Nonetheless, no translation at all shows neither in backend neither in frontend.

    Do I miss something, e.g. changing the current location of the files (wp-content/plugins/breadcrumb-navxt/languages) or renaming them?

    Many thanks in advance.

    What do you have WPLANG set to in your wp-config.php file? For French I believe the proper value for WPLAND is fr_FR

    My WPLANG is of course fr_FR in my wp-config.php. Running on 4 different sites (and configurations: server, PHP version, themes, etc.), Breadcrumb NavvXT is the only plugin with an available translation which won't show.

    I checked again the .po file: actually, the translation is really poor (73/184 strings not translated), but I could improve it with Poedit.

    Instead, I have to modify most of the settings (mainly: NavXT "template" settings) on all sites, which is a real loss of time and rather frustrating.

    According to the translation project for Breadcrumb NavXT, the French translation has 30 something strings missing, see: http://translate.mtekk.us/projects/breadcrumb-navxt

    Testing this on my local test bed, it appears the French translation files that were shipped in the last two releases were both incomplete (not meeting the 90% threshold I require for distribution), and the .mo file appears to be corrupt. In the mean time try grabbing the latest .mo/.po from the translation project linked above.

    BTW, if you are using the same settings for Breadcrumb NavXT across multiple sites (or settings that are very similar), checkout the settings importer/exporter (help tab > Import / Export / Reset).

    Thanks a lot for your responsiveness & accurate explanations.

    I exported the .mo/.po files from the translation project (and renamed them: breadcrumb-navxt-fr_FR.mo/.po instead of breadcrumb-navxt-fr.mo/.po): it works fine.

    I draw your attention to the facts that:

    • among the translated strings (i.e. 149/184 - 81%), a LOT of crucial / basic ones are not correctly translated and/or are missing in the .pot (e.g. strings including "post" or "gallery");
    • among the not translated strings (i.e. 35/184 - 19%), some should be translated in order to have standard French "frontend - template" settings before further user settings / customizations (e.g. "<a title="Go to the %title% category archives." href="%link%">%htitle%</a>").

    I of course could help you improving this translation & meet the threshold: quite simple (except for the missing strings in .pot of course), just tell me how to proceed.

    Hi Erwan,

    Yeah, unfortunately, I don't speak French so I can't validate the translations and have to trust those who have provided translations in the past. The current translator is currently not responding to my emails so if you want to pick that up that would be awesome. Please send me an email (see the contact page on my site) so I can create an account for your on translate.mtekk.us.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem, Breadcrumb NavXT don´t show existing translalation (Czech) in administration.

    I use WP 3.6 in czech version, 3.8 in english but with the WPLANG
    define('WPLANG', 'cs_CZ'); but it doesn´t work.
    I use theme Twenty Twelve, I call breadcrumb function manualy in template, for example in single.php
    <?php if(function_exists('bcn_display')) { bcn_display(); } ?>

    Could you help me?

    Where are you settings the WPLANG define? I just tried this on my testbed and the translation loads just fine (minus one translation error that will need to be corrected).

    in wp-config.php

    How low in the wp-config.php file was it? It needs to be placed before the require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php');. Also, are any other translations loading for you (e.g. is the rest of the admin area translated)? Have you checked to ensure the breadcrumb-navxt-cs_CZ.mo file exists in the languages directory in the Breadcrumb NavXT install?
