On Translating Activity Actions, and other database stored content

    I’m in the process of translating BuddyPress for a client (which I’ll release as soon as it’s done), and today I spent a good part of my day spinning my wheels over why activity actions weren’t translating.

    It turns out that activity actions are stored in the database (bp_activity) table, so if it wasn’t translated prior to being written into the database, then it’s pretty much set (unless you edit it manually). New entries that are created after translation, will be translated.

    It me a while to figure out something that basic, but I’m glad that I did, and I thought I’d share it in case there are other newbie BP translators that are trying to figure out why the translation doesn’t “work”.

    Now I know that if a translation doesn’t “stick” it’s probably because its being read from the db, and its value has already been set.

    Pretty basic stuff, but now I know. (correct me if I got it all wrong though, the illusion of knowledge is worse than ignorance)

    Thanks for confirming :D

    Oh, I wanted to edit the topic (but it doesn’t appear to be working atm) to add that I’m doing an Arabic localization of BP, so I look forward to sharing it once it’s complete.
