Changing module translation v7

on 4/8/13, 7:22 AM 1,930 views

I am trying to change some translations in a module. So I have entered in i18n folder and I have looked for the spanish file (es.po) and inside of it I have changed the terms what I want to translate more accurate in msgstr section.

But when I restart my server nothing changes. What am I doing wrong?

Try with new database

Hello A2P,

If you have your language installed and then you are making changes to the *.po then you need to update all the modules loaded. by restarting your server with -u all option.

Or if the langunge is not installed then just installing it will do the job.

Or Finally create a new database.


updating the modules works

due to restrictions i do not have enough privileges to do so.Another option that works that i think is immediate is by clicking "apply scheduled upgrades" in settings menu.

yes because A2P is the reporter so he can only do this. Regarding other option that's the same as updating a module.
