german WordPress.com homepage - translated string

  1. When not logged in and visiting the german WordPress.com homepage at http://de.wordpress.com, the section "home-discover" says:

    Entdecke über was unsere top WordPress.com Blogger geschrieben haben

    This clearly is a translation of the english original "Discover what our top WordPress.com bloggers have been writing about". My question is, where does it come from?

    I've translated the string in the german GlotPress but it's different to the one on the homepage. So where does the translation on the homepage come from? Is it hardcoded? Why doesn't it use the string in the WordPress.com GlotPress?

    Cheers

    The blog I need help with is iqatrophie.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi, Martin. The front page of WordPress.com is actually a static page that isn't connected to GlotPress, so the translations are hardcoded on that page, instead. I've just checked with our team to see about changing that string to match the translation in GlotPress. Thanks for checking on this! :)

  3. I don't understand why it's a static page when the strings can be found in GlotPress?

    I assumed they have been added with gettext when they are listed in translate.wordpress.com

  4. Hi Martin,

    These strings have been added to GlotPress because there's a version of the front page that has them added with gettext. However, the current front page is static, so it doesn't pull from GlotPress.

  5. Hi Rachel,

    I see. Thanks for the clarification. :)

    Cheers
