Support » Plugin: WordPress SEO Plugin - Rank Math » Translations do not work

  • Hello! The Russian-speaking community has completely translated the plugin into Russian. But there is a problem!
    The name of the plug-in folder does not match the Text Domain specified in the description of the plugin. You have a plugin folder called seo-by-rank-math, and the Text Domain is listed as rank-math.
    Because of this, the package of translated strings is generated and updated on the site, but the translation file is called seo-by-rank-math-ru_RU.po and the strings are not translated, since the rank-math is specified in the Text Domain
    It is necessary that the Text Domain corresponds to the name of the folder or vice versa, but that the names are the same.

    Hello @artabr

    Thank you so much for all the help and support you guys have provided. Sincerely appreciate it 🙏

    Can you please rename the file to rank-math-ru_RU.po?

    In Rank Math, we are using rank-math text domain and this is the path we are using to load the textdomain:

    In the upcoming updates, we will fix this issue.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    I can rename, only it is not correct.
    There are translation standards for plugins to follow.

    The GlotPress system automatically generates files according to the Text Domain, but if the Text Domain does not match the Plugin Name and the name of the plug-in folder, then the files will be created based on the folder name.

    You should change the Text Domain to seo-by-rank-math and your line should look like this
    Then everything will be fine.

    I support the ticket. We tried a lot to make the plugin better in the Russian-speaking community. Let’s fix the main problem

    Hello @artabr @alexodiy

    We have released an update which fixes the translation issue.

    We appreciate your help.

    Can you please tell us which handle do you guys want us to add to the ReadMe file when mentioning about the translations?

    Thank you.

    Hello! Yes, translations have appeared, but not completely. There are some untranslated lines. But it’s not scary, the main thing that works.
    No, it is not necessary to note in README, in translations, and so it is clear who translates.
