Seems there is something wrong with voting to undelete a question.

When I vote to undelete site says:

Your delete vote has been recorded

I don't have enough rep on English-based SE sites, so can only provide screenshots from Stack Overflow in Russian:


According to transifex Russian phrase:

Ваш голос за удаление учтён

corresponds to original English phrase:

Your delete vote has been recorded

Actual phrase for undelete should be:

Your undelete vote has been recorded


Nowadays I can vote to undelete here on MSE, and can confirm that English message is okay:

Hence here is something wrong with translation mechanism. For some reason on ruSO (and maybe other localized sites) is used translation from “delete vote” source instead of “undelete vote”.

  • I can't recall having voted to undelete on any site (though I have the privilege somewhere, I think), but why do you think this is a network-wide issue, and not just only on Russian language sites? (+1, by the way)

  • @Shokhet as far as I know at least all localized SO sites (ru, pt, es, jp) use same code base. Apr 26 '17 at 3:22
  • That may be true (and is, as far as I know), but the message you're talking about is clearly a different message than what would show on EngSO or any other English language site. I've never seen Cyrillic characters in system messages on any SE site I've used. However, this [bug] may be more visible to the devs here than it would be on RuSO, so there's that.

    @Shokhet I have an access to translations on ruSO, so I can see original English sentences which would be used if no translation present. Apr 26 '17 at 3:30
