Support » Plugin: Heroic Glossary » [French translation] Difficulty to generate the JSON translation file

  • Resolved trucmuchebidule


    Hello !

    I wanted to share with you the French translation file I made for your plugin. It would be super great if it could be integrated in the next update !

    I’ve never done a translation for a Gutenberg block before and I’m having a hard time exporting it to a working JSON file despite the tutorials I’ve followed. I have used the cli command : wp i18n make-json languages/ --no-purge and I get 8 json files corresponding to the translation I made.

    From what I understand, I should select the most complete JSON file (the file with the biggest size?), rename it to “ht-glossary-fr_FR-htgb-block.json” and change this line inside "domain": "messages", "locale_data":{"messages":{"":{"domain": "messages", to "domain": "ht-glossary", "locale_data":{"ht-glossary":{"":{"domain": "ht-glossary",. By trying like this, my translation file does not seem to be taken into account 🙁

    By the way, I wanted to thank you for this simple and efficient glossary plugin!

    Thanks for your help !

    Hi @trucmuchebidule

    Thanks for letting us know, it looks like you’re following the correct process, but the plugin isn’t loading the block translation correctly.

    I’ve made a note on our tracker to investigate the issue and will fix in a future update.

    Thanks again for flagging this,

    Kind Regards,

    Hi @trucmuchebidule,

    Just to advise that this has been a work in progress and we have released v1.2.2 today, which improves the translation loading behaviour. It also includes French as an example of a pre-translated language pack.

    There’s still some work to be done to streamline this process, but hopefully it’s a big improvement in the translation functionality of the Heroic Glossary block.
