Bug Description

There is a newline character in the Yoruba translation of the following string:

This results in a .directory file that contains an orphaned line of text, and is thus invalid and cannot be parsed.

Software-center parses the file on launch, and thus cannot launch.

Thanks Kyle. As there is no Ubuntu translation team for Yoruba, I'm assigning it to the original translator.

I can confirm this bug is present in the translations as shown on Launchpad. Upstream translators at GNOME-yo don't have this string translated, so this must be a bug in the Ubuntu translations, even though there seems to be no team actually translating.

This bug can be set to Triaged for the gnome-menus packages since it has been handled properly by the bug managers and it's now up to the translators to fix it. Thanks to all commenters for their contributions to this bug report.

is that a translation issue? in which case it should be assigned to the language pack for the locale and not gnome-menus

Is this still an issue? In the current translation, I actually see two lines, and the second is not orphaned. But I don't know Yoruba, so it would be kind of you to determine if the bug is still present.

The translated string is still the same since 2008, and still contains a newline:

What would be your guess? Sigh...
