[gnome-screenshot] Translated text is not shown translated

Asked by Christoph Korn on 2009-03-21

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

I just installed the jaunty daily and saw an unstranslated string in gnome-screenshot.
(See attached screenshot)
So I grabbed the source package with apt-get source gnome-utils and wanted to translate it.
But it is already translated in the po file.
What is wrong here?

the translations are in language packs in ubuntu

Does it make sense to translate the applications twice?
The string is also translated in the jaunty source package?

Now I looked in language-pack-de, language-pack-de-base, language-pack-gnome-de, language-pack-gnome-de-base and I did not find the gnome-screenshot translation in any of these.

Ok, now I have found the translation in language-pack-gnome-de-base.
(I searched for gnome-screenshot instead of gnome-utils)

Now I see that the string is really untranslated there.

So what was going wrong there?

And how can I translate it?

Please submit a new suggestion, your translate suggestion in that page...

Hope this helps

Christoph Korn (c-korn) said : #6

What page?
The translation suggestion is fine.
It is just not in the language-pack.

On a testing unstable release, if the translation is fine, you must only wait the stable release with the incoming translation upgraded and included into the final release...

Hope this helps

The todays translation updates fixed it.
