Support » Plugin: Atomic Blocks - Gutenberg Blocks Collection » Translations does not go to the blocks panel

  • Hello, We’ve translated the plugin in Spanish, but I still see the options of the blocks in english. For example, the blocks container and columns.

    @davidperez sorry about that! Do you have specific strings that aren’t translating? Also which version did you translate?

    Hello John!

    I have the latest version and it’s in the Gutenberg block’s options. It’s not translated, but in you can see that is at 100%

    I send you an screen:

    Hi David,

    Did you have any luck sorting this out in the mean time? If not, we’ll try to regenerate the language files in the next release.

    Hello! I’m afraid that it’s not working. It’s still showing the english version not translated.


    WordPress 5.0 has added a new system, based on JSON files, to translate the text strings which appear in the new WordPress editor (Gutenberg). Although it applies to Genesis Framework (a theme), you can see an thorough explanation here: The situation is a bit different from the one you describe in your post, but the basis of the problem is the same.

    Even though you fully translate the .PO file and upload the translation files to WordPress, most of the plugin remains untranslated, because of the lack of the JSON files.

    Trying to find a solution, I’ve generated the JSON files from the atomic-blocks-es_ES.po file, as it is explained in the link above (the wp-cli command generates more than 60 different files), and then I have uploaded them to WordPress, but it doesn’t work.

    This new WordPress translation system is not easy to understand, and I’m afraid that many plugin developers are not applying it in their code. In my humble opinion, the problem is very serious, because there is a growing number of plugins which interact with new WordPress editor, and also a growing number of text chains which remain untranslated because of the lack of the appropiate JSON files. The consequence of this situation is very ugly: after installing two or three plugins which interact with WordPress editor, you get an unpredictable mixture of spanish and english.

    By the way, David, if you feel more comforable talking about this issue in spanish, you can send me a message through the contact form of my web site: I will answer by email.

    Hello Eduardo, I understand the problem, and I expect that should be solved by WordPress team? Is any ticket related with this issue?

    Thread Starter David Perez


    I’m making the discussion as well in Spanish Slack. I think that is important to speak about the problema and possible solutions.

    I’m not sure if someone has opened a ticket on this issue. The problem with Atomic Blocks and other plugin translations is not due to a bug, but to a lack of attention to the complexity of translating the new WordPress editor.

    Anuway, thank you very much for your attention, David.
