Post by @go »

I have a translation error in the Gloria mintMenu, I use Italian as main language, but the button to swith from Favourites to All Applications is in French :shock: . I underlined it in red in the screenshot.

Thank you for reporting this
Unfortunately translations are hardcoded into the Mint applications (should and hopefully will be changed)

Does this mean that the small error I've found, when right click on img says "Set as wallpaper" in otherwise Swedish text has to be hardcoded? No simple txt file? Sigh... A minor error, yes, but it was noticed directly by "customer"... :(
But I guess it's a quick fix once you know how to? :D

This is an upstream translation issue I believe...
It should be the package "nautilus-wallpaper" that provides this(if I'm not misstaken), and since it's not an "official" Gnome package, but rather an extension in the nautilus actions, it's probably not translated.

It is only the Mint tools that have a hard coded translation - it is on the to do list to use a separate language file for them

Awrite... Hrmmm... Thx, helped a lot, it's all crystal clear now! :lol: Any chance getting it fixed? Buy the Private or the Business Support Package? Donate money to the Mighty Gurus? Pray in the direction of Linus home town in Finland??? This is not a big problem, no, but turned up as an issue when trying to convince a girl at an office to switch to Linux Mint... :(
