Summary15042: here we go again - missing strings in translation system
DescriptionA never ending story. I installed the latest rc1 LS4 and there are a lot of untranslated strings in the GUI. Those strings are not found in GlotPress.

It is very time-consuming to do translations, but what feels even more waste of time is to report every single text string missing from GlotPress.

I'm not a programmer but I have understood there has to be a tag in the code around each text string. In most cases the developer has just forgot this. If this is correct, please do something about it!

I'm a volunteer and I spend a lot of time doing translation work. To start all over again and report what should not be necessary is a pain and make me sometimes asking myself why I bother. I can personally switch to English and let the Norwegian translation files silently die... I can do without.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello @pmonstad,

First, I would like to thank you for your contributions - they are on my desk. Will focus on them once we're getting closer to the 4.0.0 release.

Regarding the translation issues, yes, they can be frustrating and we totally agree with you (I also personally take care of Romanian ^^).

Perhaps you can put everything in a spreadsheet and send it to me via email (the page that does not contain the tag is sufficient). In that way, you will have to spend less amount of work/time so that you do not create multiple bug reports every time.

Thank you for your pro-active behaviour!

P.s. you can find my email address here: .
