  • Resolved heydjude


    Hi TranslatePress team,

    Great work and your plugin was working fine up until the latest update. The issue I’m facing is that translated strings are losing spacing between a period (.) and the start of next sentence. This is happening when using links in website copy. A space of one character (used to separate words) is going missing if a sentence has any linked text as part of the copy.

    For example:
    I use a link in a sentence like this. When I start the next sentence, the spaces before and after the linked text is missing. So, the translated site copy reads as such: I use alinkin a sentence like this.

    Manual Solutions Tried
    I tried adding an extra space when translating the strings but it reverts to its own (non-spaced) translation.

    This is rendering text with links to be right next to each other (without a space) and is causing UX and reading issues with translated text. This was not an issue with the earlier update. I’m using Version 2.0.9 right now.

    Would you please suggest a permanent solution? Thanks.

    FWIW, pasting   instead of a space at the end of translated string is working for now. Doing this, the plugin converts the html character ( ) into a space and keeps it there.

    @tayberg13 – you can use this workaround till the plugin gets fixed. Cheers!
