    After the upgrade to WordPress 4.3, I’ve noticed that many Jetpack text strings remain unstranslated even after translating them and uploading the .MO file, to /wp-content/languages/plugins, or to /wp-content/plugins/jetpack/languages.

    On the other hand, I’ve noticed that version 4.3 includes a new folder, /languages/json, with .json files which include some text strings translated (but not all).

    So, I have two questions:

    1. Where do I have to upload the .MO file, so that Jetpack could be completely translated?

    2. If that is not the right way to do it, how can I generate a .JSON file for the new folder? Is there any way to generate it from the .PO file? I’ve tried with this online tool (https://localise.biz/free/converter/po-to-json), but I haven’t been able to get it to work.

    I know that plugin translations are automatically updated from Translating WordPress (GlotPress). However, many plugin translations are incomplete or incorrect. So, I would like to have the possibility of override the “official” translations with my own ones, in any circumstances. Is that possible in Jetpack 4.3? And if so, how to get it?

    That’s indeed a known issue, and something that will be addressed in the next version of Jetpack.

    I know that plugin translations are automatically updated from Translating WordPress (GlotPress). However, many plugin translations are incomplete or incorrect.

    If you find incorrect or missing translations, the easiest way to get it fixed is to start contributing translations here:
    https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/jetpack

    That’s indeed an option with all plugins in the plugin directory. You can follow the instructions here to do so:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/faq-how-do-i-prevent-updates-from-overwriting-my-translations/

    Overwriting the strings in the .json files won’t be possible, though. To change those strings, I’d recommend using the translation tools on WordPress.org, as I suggested above.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you for your attention, Jeremy. I appreciate your suggestions, but I don’t feel very comfortable translating Jetpack through GlotPress, partly because of the interface, but above all because of the process of suggesting translations, wait for the approval and so on…
