Seems like pootle don't save translations.
To reproduce:

  1. Open some file for translation and translate several items
  2. Close browser (or browser tab) with this file
  3. Open this file again

All previously made translations will be missed. Was catched on Ukrainian language.

Testing mailing list

I'm still seeing commits come though from Pootle, so some of them must be going through. Maybe the translation you had done was during the update window?


Can you re-try and see if the translation "takes"?

Just a FYI Kris this was also reported by the indonesian translation team. On occasion they would have to leave an item that needed translated for a day and come back to it to translate later. I've not observed this myself, but it does seem to apply in other instances as well.

I think this could be occurring while the push / pull from git is happening. Make a trac ticket and I'll try to take a look when I get a chance :)

Ok, I've made changes to how pootle syncs. Now it'll shutdown pootle web-services when it does the initial Pootle -> Git sync. This will prevent translators from submitting strings which get clobbered later on. Currently this process takes about 20 minutes, and runs at 5AM EST / 10AM GMT.
