If you open any of localized meta site in browser's private mode, e.g. ruSO.meta you will see untranslated text on the top right corner:


This message is not found in Transifex, hence unable to localize.

The text and styling for that block are basically just HTML in the site's settings.

If y'all come up with a translation on SOru's meta, we can set that up.

    True. It's already translated for Portuguese and Japanese. I did check ruSO and esSO only. Aug 22, 2017 at 18:04

    BTW, is there a reason to not move it into Transifex? Aug 22, 2017 at 18:35
  • @alexolut Having a setting for this allows us to customize the box a lot easier, but I'm not sure off hand if there are any sites with different text there. We could probably do a default in code (and, by extension, in Transifex) with a site setting override. That has the potential to be confusing, though, since any Transifex changes would never get reflected on the site if there was an override present.

  • I did not really understand the part about confusing. Could you explain in more detail? Aug 23, 2017 at 19:43
  • @alexolut I mean that if we were to have something custom in a setting that overrides the transifex string, making any changes in transifex wouldn't show up on the site, but it wouldn't be at all obvious why.

  • now I see. In my thoughts Transifex should contain maximum of possible settings for localized site. Any other place for settings should be used only in rare unique cases. Aug 23, 2017 at 20:13
