core does not appear to be in Transifex. Should I make directly to the message_fr.properties file? (I want to add French translations to the core module.)
This is OpenMRS Core in Transifex: https://www.transifex.com/openmrs/OpenMRS/openmrs-core/
I would assume that we should avoid committing messages.properties files directly (other than the en_US one).
Who had privileges to write translations for openmrs-core? Not me.
@mogoodrich and I are unable to save translations for the openmrs-core module although we have privileges for other OpenMRS modules (see image. “The resource of this source string is not accepting translations.”). When I click on the OpenMRS Core project there’s a lock icon next to it and it says that it isn’t accepting translations at this moment.
@mksd Thanks. The link is helpful since openmrs-core didn’t show up in the list of OpenMRS modules.
We currently do not use transifex to translate the core messages.properties. You must edit these directly (including things other than en_US).
We might want to start doing core translations in transifex also, but someone would need to take the time to set this up.
Sorry @ball if I misled you here, I assumed that if Core was in Transifex that was it!
Is there a reason we have Core in Transifex if we are not using it? I assume we started to set it up at some point but never completed it?
Any chance that organizing the messages_xx.properties files and migrated to Transifex would be a good task for GCI?
I made the a pull-request with the changes directly on the openmrs-core messages_fr.properties file.
Yes that sounds like a very good idea.
