Labels on File Output Node not translated
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

This node has an 'Image' (Hình Ảnh) socket, but its label is NOT translatable. I think, the file creating this node is in (~/blender/source/blender/nodes/composite/nodes/node_composite_outputFile.c). I've checked with both the latest versions 2.79.6 and 2.78c. Here are the screenshots of both versions

Version 2.78

I'm not sure what the solution is here. The socket names will be the layer names written into multilayer images. If we change the actual layer names to the file, then some external software will not be able to read it. If we only translate them for the UI, it's misleading.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) claimed this task.

Probably we should just not do anything here, since the sockets are written to the image files and layer names matter for compatibility with other apps, translating doesn't make sense to me.
