Submitting translations for official extensions does not work well

Over half a year ago i made sure all the 8 official extensions was translated to danish and uploaded the translations.

But it seem only 2 of the extensions are including the translations even though there have been new releases and i submitted the translations in advance of the the new releases.

So this way of submitting translations for extentions does not work well when it only works 2 out of 8 times and i and the users have to wait maybe a year to see the translation and by that time its outdated.

I can see all of your translations in the respective extension language support topic.

He is probably referring to the fact that they are not included in the package.

I used to include translation in my Extension Download but it was more trouble than it was worth as it will cause problems when there is a language string update to the extension.

Having the translations in separate download(s) makes my life easier, and new translations can be added at any time.

Because translators - as well as extension authors - often deliver something only once and with no update, I have to agree with HifiKabin. It is better to offer translations separately where there is no permanent cooperation. It makes no difference whether it is an official or private extension.
