    Hi,

    I have downloaded translation file of Russian language from
    https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/weather-atlas/
    and successfully installed it via /wp-content/languages/plugins .

    However some strings like ‘km/h’, ‘mbar’, ‘min’ do not exist inside .po file or weather-atlas.pot file either.

    Do you have plans to add it? Without those strings widget’s translation look not completed.

    Thank you very much.

    Hello,

    thank you for using the widget and the translation.

    I’ve noticed you using translations in an incorrect manner. You should not have downloaded and installed RU on your web site. Although this method works, it is not eligible for future language and widget updates.

    You should have simply declared the language of the WordPress site (in WP-Admin) as RU, and automatically the RU translation will become visible on all sites with RU language settings (language becomes eligible when high enough % of translation in approved).

    The current issue is that RU language is not fully translated, as there are 135 phrases waiting for approval, but that is not up to us. It is up to a community to approve translations.

    You are right. Those translations will be added ultimately.

    Hi,

    Yes, I understood all of that, before I uploaded translation manually. I just wanted to make things work right now, cuz community’s translation’s going slow and it make take months.

    I did upload my translation suggestions already for RU translation. Unfortunately some strings are too complex for my understanding to give the translation on it.

    Thank you for the reply.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, one can not upload translation and verify it as well – and that’s good from the point of accuracy. It’s a slow process, but ultimately (if there are enough interested parties) it works.

    Regards.
