Support » Everything else WordPress » Why is there so many translation updates

    I am managing updates for a particular client and whenever I run updates there are at least a half dozen or more individual translation updates happening for EVERY SINGLE PLUGIN. It almost triples the amount of time it takes to run updates for this website. This is the only client site this happens for and I cannot see why this is happening on this particular site. I’m assuming it has something to do with the actual installation file used to set up WP (not done by me). Can anyone shed some light on this? Copy of updates list below:

  • New language packs are generated:
    – When any translation has changed (Perhaps I fixed a typo)
    – When any source strings have changed (I.e. there was an update of the plugin)

    WordPress looks for what core language packs are already installed under /wp-content/languages … and when it sees that there’s something to update, it will go and get it.
    Many webhosts include several languages directly from start in their one-click installs. Whenever an admin user changes the site language setting, new languages can get added to this.
    If you’re using any multilingual solution, then it’s going to need language packs for all configured languages.

    If there are any languages present that you don’t need, then you can simply remove them via FTP.

    Thank you, that is exactly the info I needed to sort this. I’ve removed the extra language packs. Thank you again.
