## Using AMOS tool for language pack translation

### Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Hi all,

I've completed the french translation of Moodle 2.3, but the download page (http://download.moodle.org/langpack/2.3/) doesn't reflect this status: a string seems to be missing and we're stuck at 99% .

Any idea?

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

This problem seems to persist. Bump !

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Maybe you just do not try hard enough? No, seriously - that is a known problem reported as MDLSITE-1359. I just did not get to look at it closely so far. I just did some debugging now. Having your langpack fully translated helped me a lot.

Firstly, there was a bug in AMOS that it did not consider tool_assignmentupgrade as a standard plugin in 2.3 while it should be. This was fixed, so some missing strings can appear in stats at the download page again.

Then, there are two malicious strings reported by my script:

langconfig.php does not contain parentlanguage


Both these strings are declared as empty in the English pack. So it is perfectly OK to leave them untranslated in French (and the Translator even does not let you to commit an empty string which is yet another known issue). So these two strings are not in fr.zip. I thought I found the reason of the problem - it wrongly handles strings that are empty in English and missing in French. Simply said, such strings should be considered as translated. BUT. What worries me is that the stats display 17845/17846 French strings translated. If I was right, there should be two strings reported as missing, not one...

OK, let me work on this yet. I'll see what can be done. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for working on this. I wasn't aware of MDLSITE-1359.

Cheers, Nicolas

Thats annoying : Nicolas will talk on June 20 2012 in the morning (French time), and has to be able to show that french is 100% translated

Not so problematic indeed, Séverin

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3
Salut Nicolas. Can you please try and achieve 100% again? I made some corrections and at the moment, the Translator reports 8 missing strings and that matches the figures at the stats page. I still am not sure the issue is completely fixed but should be definitively better now.
Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Hi David! Done: french should be at 100% again now.

Cheers!

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Gosh! Two strings are still reported as missing. Or are these the 2 empty strings reported above?

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Hi Nicolas,

The workaround is to do two commits on those strings: the first inserts somthing and the second clean them up

I know that is not (at all) a clean method, but I have done this on brasilian portuguese lang pack and it worked well. See http://download.moodle.org/langpack/2.3/

Hi André,

As far as I can see, it didn't worked so well, as you're in the same state as me: 2 strings off

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

It is an endless batle There was 2 (new) assing strings missing. Look now:

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

I just attempted this. Will report if it has worked.

Cheers, Nicolas

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

It worked

Ciao!

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Yep, trick worked for me too - thanks a lot for the hint

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Trick also worked for me. I achieved 100% translated strings for mexican spanish.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

I tried the trick but maybe I did something wrong. Still unbale to get 100% on 2.2 (1 string left) and 2.3 (2 string left) .

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

It looks fine to me Andrea: your 2.2 is 100% and your 2.3 has one missing string: 2.3 [course:isincompletionreports,core_role], introduced the 18th of October.

Don't forget that changes can take up to 3 hours before showing up in the stats.

Re: Unable to achieve 100% in 2.3

Thanks for checking Koen. I'm happy to know I was able to get rid of the two missing string using the trick. Although I'm aware of the delay form commit to availability in the lang pack, I probably checked too early anyway.
