It looks like translation haven't been exported from Launchpad for a while. When pulling the latest branch from Launchpad for 2.0 and 3.0 both contain very old pot-templates and po-files.

I took a look at the code and it seems like translation files haven't been updated for a while as stated before. But that's not the only problem: What causes this problem is that pot-template (created 2011-06-22) and po-files (pot created 2011-05-20) don't fit each other. This means, po-files contain newer paths (like ../src/service...) that haven't existed in that version (Cloudy 9) yet therefore resulting in gettext not being able to match strings and translations.

The only way to solve this bug is to update pot-template and po-files with current translations from Launchpad.

My comment above is a little bit messed up but basically the problem are old translations containing wrong file paths.

WORKAROUND:

Download current translations from Launchpad in .mo-format and replace /usr/share/locale/YOUR-LANGUAGE-CODE/LC_MESSAGES/indicator-weather.mo with the downloaded file (you need to rename the file after downloading).

After restarting Weather Indicator all translations should be shown as expected.

Thanks Hendrik!

This sounds as if the current translations for indicator-weather in launchpad [1] will disappear in the near future (when a new .pot file will eventually be uploaded). Therefore I just have downloaded the 100% complete German translation (for the current template) from launchpad as a BACKUP .po file.

Can anyone verify this is still an issue with the latest release (13.05.27)?
