Bug Description

It is not funny to help translating, if every few months the translation is overwritten by an old version of the translation. So all my translations in 2013 and 2014 are destroyed. That is a problem in every language.

You translate in German, according to your profile, aren't you?
I was not aware that German translation was done in Launchpad (there are so many language not seriously handled throw Launchpad that I do not try to know what is done).

When did you submit the translations to <email address hidden> the translations ? The last submission I've got in my archives is december 2012.

I'll revert the changes to restore your translations.
I can also send your translations if you want (it's time just before release of e19).

Yes, I am translating to german.
It is not good, to use more than one translation platform. If Enlightenment can translated here on launchpad why should someone think there is an other platform to translate? I mailed the same problem to you a few months ago.

I haven't send it to an email address. I don't know that this should be done.

All my translations are now for review.
It is not only a problem in the german translation. When I look at the Dutch, Swedish, Galician, Greek, … translation there are translations from 2012,2013,2014 and now needs to review.

Nice Day, Tobias

Hi Tobias,

I reverted the changes. Translations are as they were on 2014-09-13, before the regression.

I've added some notices that translations must be sent.

What do you mean with "All my translations are now for review."?
Do you need some help from German translators before sending translations to the official repository?

Your revert does not work!

Many of my translations are now only suggestions. But I never done the translations as suggestions I have done them for use. Example 156 strings for review: https://translations.launchpad.net/enlightenment/trunk/+pots/enlightenment/de/+translate?show=new_suggestions
Every time you upload an 2 year old translation file all translations, done after, are for review.

You can see this in the german translation and in all the other translations. So many strings for review isn't normal.

Where is the hidden notice?

This is so bad and a big slap in the face of all translators who spend much time for translating here on launchpad.

When should I send the strings to the email address? After every string I have translated before it will be overwritten? I don't know the overwriting times!
