Translation to danish only works on front end

Post by PoulJ »

[3.3.1] Upgraded from 3.2.9 to 3.3.1 and the selected language Danish is only shown on front pages not on other pages like UCP and ACP.
Also one extension: Advanced Polls are not being translated.

Yes I picked the 3.3.0 version.

I have a friend that have used that version on a 3.3.1 board without problem, so this is a bit weird.

Just a follow up:
I notice that in my 3.2.9 board under language packs, in column USED BY (INCLUDING ROBOTS), it says 658 on the Danish language pack line, but on the 3.3.1 board the user number is still shown on the English language pack, and it says 0 for the Danish language pack.

So it looks like the users are not switched to Danish.

I also tested installing a German language pack that is available for 3.3.1. This shows the exact same picture: I cannot fully switch to another language than English.

Maybe that means something to somebody ?

So you tried to use a language package for phpBB 3.3.1 with your phpBB 3.2.9 and you ask us, why this won't work?

No.
I have a test site where I test 3.3.1.

The live site is running 3.2.9.

I copied my 3.2.9 to the test site and did the suggested upgrade procedure from 3.2.9 to 3.3.1.

So there is a number of extensions. Please see initial message.

And what happens when you disable the extensions?

Also check, if you upload all the files from the language pack.

Translation for extensions are not part of the phpBB language files, but are part of the specific extension. If the required language is not present, either request it in the extension topic, or (probably faster) translate the extension yourself.
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Hi guys,

I have now disabled all extensions, changed default style to prosilver but Danish is still not used in ACP.

I am aware about the need to translate the extensions.

Have uploaded all once more today. So this is ok.

My plan is later today to start from scratch. First with at clean 3.3.1 install and the Danish language pack.

If that works, then do an upgrade from 3.2.9 to 3.3.1.

I will let you know how it goes.
