Support » Plugin: Loco Translate » Translation won’t update after first upload

    I’m currently trying to translate the Forminator Plugin. Adding the current translation file for German works fine. I can then change another translation in the plugin or the actual .po file itself. But after I did my first “save” every further translation will be saved but not shown in the actual plugin. There is no error message or anything. It says that the .mo file has been successfully created, but the translation text won’t show up.

    This sounds like the file editor has done its job. Can you verify the .mo file is saved and is named correctly? Where have you saved it? Can you post a link to it?

    but the translation text won’t show up.

    Have you read the FAQs? This usually isn’t a problem with the editor. Which strings won’t show up?

    If you mean this forminator plugin I don’t have a problem with it. I picked a random string “Active Forms” and translations of that show up fine in the admin area.

    If you need more specific help, please be more specific about the problem.

    I’ve tried all the three saving locations and came up with the same issue over and over again. I can’t really be more specific as there is no error message or anything and it actually works the first time, but not anymore after I saved it once.

    I started modifying the file in Atom (text editor) and came across the problem. Thought it was something with that so I swapped to editing the file in the Loco plugin. Though the issue appeared again. I tried syncing, reuploading the file to the server manually, deactivating both plugins and reactivating again – even tried reinstalling both and the same problem occured again (can modify the translation once, but no more after that).

    Couldn’t find a solution or a similar situation in the FAQs or the Web.

    I was able to identify the problem further, couldn’t solve it though:

    Translations work up to a specific point – as soon as I try to translate “active forms” the whole thing seems to crash and actually stop then from showing proper translations. Maybe there is something wrong with the “plural”-field? As long as I don’t try to transalte that specific variable, all translations work.

    “Active Forms” is a singular string and also the plural of “Active Form”. There’s nothing technically wrong with that. If you want to know if the field is correct in your MO file, please post a link to it as I already asked.
