17 new strings for translation in SecureDrop 0.12.0 release (string freeze)


Hello everyone,

From today we have string freeze in place, means no more update of strings for the 0.12.0 release of SecureDrop.

We have 17 new strings and 2 updated strings in this release. We are sorry to add so many strings at the last moment. This happened due to a bug we discovered in the NoScript extension, and we had to add messages in the user interface to explain how to go around the problem. More details can be found at https://github.com/freedomofpress/securedrop/issues/4078 .

Reviewers from localizationlab are kindly reminded that they can Approve a string, meaning translators can only suggest modifications but cannot modify the translated string. This helps make sure the strings they reviewed are not changed unexpectedly right before the release. See the documentation for more information about this feature.

If you notice something odd in the strings marked Need review, this is not a bug and there are good reasons for this to happen and nothing we can do to improve that. This is rare though and you can just provide the correct translation and all will be good. If you think the problem you’re seeing is different, please followup on that thread in the forum.

On the weblate language page, you will see that some strings need review (they were modified) and others are new and not translated yet.
