#158 closed Feature Request (fixed)

Translations unuseable if they are not completed

There are very few languages that have 100% of strings translated.

I use very often various open source software that has been translated into my language (Slovak). When there is a string that was not used in previous version and it is not yet translated an English equivalent is used.

This is not the case with PC-BSD. When there is an untranslated string there is simply an empty space instead. Some time ago I tried to install PC-BSD in Slovak and I failed miserably, because with missing strings you simply can not continue. This has prompted me to start translating and I have translated more than 50% of strings for Slovak language.

I suggest following solution.
Immediately before a new version of PC-BSD is built you should "merge" translated strings with the original english ones. Instead of an empty string the english string should be used.

Fixed for 8.x, only finished translations are enabled now, so you don't select something which is only 10% finished :)
