You intend to help to translate the Drupal interface to a language? This is the place! Look into the translator's guide in the Drupal Handbook for detailed documentation, as well as get onto the translations mailing list.

The internationalization group might also be interesting, dealing with content translation support issues in and around Drupal.

Drupal 8 - Site language changing abruptly

I have a Drupal 8 site with version 8.2.3. I have two languages configured on the site.
Default - English and other one Spanish. Issue is site content is getting translated randomly. Spanish content is seen on the site when the current language is English and vice-versa.
After rebuilding cache (Drupal cache as well as server cache) , it works fine.
I am not able to reproduce this issue as Translations changes randomly and it affects different entries every time it happens.

Help translate the Drupal 8 announcement and press release

Drupal 8 makes huge strides in terms of supporting languages. So it is just natural, that similar to how we did with the Drupal 7 press release and release announcement, we would love to make the same two announcements for Drupal 8 available in as many languages as possible on its release day on November 19th. We need your help to do that though! We'd love at least one translator and one reviewer for each language.

Choice of the language translation manager


We have a small problem with the Mongolian translation team manager, who



  • keeps as "admins" people who have become absolutely inactive,
  • suddenly excluded, the 2nd most active translator, from the admins with no explanation (He later explained that since an employee of us asked to become admin under the name " worker", he excluded our company.),
  • refuses to give us the password of " worker", our former employee who used the company name but didn't let the password when suddenly leaving his job,

    Translated nodes don't

    I have come across something strange that I am hoping this group knows how to fix. I have path alias enabled on my site which creates unique paths depending on the type of node and fields selected.

    So the URL for one of my nodes would look something like this:

    That would be the English page, and if I had a translated version of that node, it would look like this:

    Strings with problematic English grammar

    I forked the Very similar localization strings spreadsheet into a new one, but now focusing on incorrect English* strings. Usually I just dump in my findings, so the ‘Suggestion’ column waits your school-age daughter to find the typos and fill in the correct forms. Don't forget to reward her for helping thousands of Drupal-translators worldwide!

    Open the spreadsheet in Google Drive...

    Very similar localization strings

    During the translation job I found several very similar strings with only slight differences: mostly grammatical (e.g. lettercase or punctuation), but sometimes in content (e.g. "Recent activity" and "Latest activity"), which means the same. These examples of redundancy also contributes to increasing the total number of all strings to an enormous level (more than half million currently). Once we will need to figure out some programmed method to rationalize these “quasi-duplications”. As a first step I started to collect them together to have a better overview.

    How Translators can affect the strings in the code?

    Hi All Translators,

    I'm not so experienced yet with the depth of Drupal community, I just occassionally contributed some hundreds translation suggestions to the Hungarian team during the years. However as I went through those strings on l.d.o, sometimes I just realized some mistakes in the English strings themselves, which not even the Translation Team Managers has access to correct.

    Disabling the Google Translate "better translation" popup

    I am working on a site in Portuguese and using Google Translate since I don't know Portuguese.

    The problem is the annoying popup that appears when hovering over a link in the Admin Menu bar that covers the menu.

    I found and posted a solution here using the Adblock Plus extension for Chrome with a custom filter that blocks the popup

    The custom filter is "##div#goog-gt-tt"

    Hope this helps

    مدیران سایت و ترجمه دروپال فارسی

    دوستان مدتی هست که هیچ‌یک از مدیران سایت و ترجمه فعالیتی نداشته. خواستم از همین‌جا بگم که برای انگیزه بیشتر و بالا بردن مشارکت شما، مدیران غیر فعال از سایت و تیم ترجمه حذف خواهند شد.

    برخی از مدیران متاسفانه فقط برای اسمش اعلام آمادگی کردن.

    دسترسی به کد سایت به آقای امیر مدرسی داده شده بود. به دلیل نداشتن حتی یک commit این دسترسی حذف خواهد شد

    برای مشارکت عضو تیم بشید نه برای کسب منفعت!

    Import custom translations from own localization server to clients

    Right now we're developing 3 sites in German, Dutch and Swedish.
    Each site will have content in different languages (25 in total, but for the Swedish e.g. 10, for the Dutch 17 and for the German 19 language)
    Some of the languages are quite exotic and not welknown.

    We use for this a 3-letter language-code and have a central localization server to manage the interface and content-translations.

    What I want to accomplish is that on each client (Swedish, German and Dutch) the enabled languages are automatically updated from the localization server.

    How can this be done?
