How to manage empty strings?


#1

Hi,

Yet, it’s impossible to translate any translation to 100% (even in the source language “english”!) because some strings need to be left “empty” which is not allowed in Weblate.

See for instance: the 4 following strings:




How can we handle these strings?

  • Remove them from Weblate?
  • Change Weblate behavior: accept empty string and consider them automatically like “done translation”?

Thanks for your answers,

That’s what we were doing in the old system and that’s the logic we followin in actual translation files but not sure if Weblate support this.

Ok, it looks like Weblate needs to be improved, see: https://github.com/WeblateOrg/weblate/issues/1920

Either Weblate will be improved and https://l10n.xwiki.org/ will need to be updated or we will need to think about my first proposal (removing empty strings from Weblate resources files).
