Translation text is still in English
Closed, ResolvedPublic


A few pieces of texts are still in English.

  1. "cell_size" (this is not even in proper English, it's more like name of an internal variable)
  2. "This property is for internal use only and can't be edited." (rna_access.c)

To see them:
Reproduce procedure:

  1. New Blend file, leave the default cube as is.
  2. Select the default cube, then Object->Quick Effects->Quick Smoke
  3. On Outliner, next to 'Search', select 'Data-Blocks' ('All Scenes' by default)
  4. Go down to section for 'Objects'
  5. Select 'Smoke Domain' object.
  6. Scroll down to 'Modifiers' section
  7. Expand 'Smoke', 'Domain Settings'
  8. Scroll down to see 'cell_size', and move the mouse pointer to the first value text box for 'X' value, you should see the text

"Disabled: This property is for internal use only and can't be edited."

  1. Now go to the menu 'File->User Preferences->System'
  2. Click on the 'International Fonts' and select a language of choice, other than English.
  3. Move the mouse pointer back to the text box 'X' value mentioned above and you should see the first piece of text 'Disabled' has been translated, but the remain part is NOT.

This is because right now this msg is still hardcoded in english in rna_access.c

Afaik this will only enter the realm of translation if this is changed to

If you then make an entry in the .po of choice like

1msgid "This property is for internal use only and can't be edited."
2msgstr "translation of your choice"

and rebuild blender it actually shows up as expected.

More info [to do it properly :)] here and here though I am not sure if they are a bit outdated... looking further into this and try to find out if we track places that could use internationalization somewhere...

Tempted to not call this a bug though but more of a TODO?
