English problem in the PO file
Closed, ResolvedPublicTO DO


In the PO file, there mentioned a piece of text, a tooltip for 'Area Weight':

#. :src: bpy.types.UV_OT_smart_project.user_area_weight
msgid "Weight projections vector by faces with larger areas"

Checking this against the original manual on this page:

it turned out that the text should be:

Area Weight

Weight projection's vector by faces with larger areas

In the word 'projections', the 's' should indicate 'possesion', instead of plural as typed. It needs an apostrophe before the 's'.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to Normal.

Seems like a reasonable change, do you want to commit yourself?

I wouldn't mind but:

  1. I'm not yet registered as a developer, just as a translator? I honestly do not know what role I have and how far I can contribute to the project.
  1. The change would be applied to


  1. Would the change made be propagated to all PO files for language upon build (ie. a script would run through all languages and update their respective po file?)
  1. How to set up a development environment and have the ability to update code to master repository? At the moment I only have a copy of Blender source on my local machine, downloaded using

git clone

Would that be enough?

Ah, yes this would have to be run through the .py and all .po
I'll claim then and run by @Bastien Montagne (mont29) to set me up as a translator as well and discuss if this is worth the hassle.

Thx for spotting this, just to let you know: this has rather low priority on my list atm (so it might take a little while...)

Thanks for taking this task on. I won't mind the wait.
