Perch UI translations only work on the login page
I'm working on a translation, and run into a problem when wanted to switch the Perch UI language from English to a custom one. I've used
de-de.txt for testing from the Perch2-UI-Translations repository on GitHub (but the problem applies to all language files I've tried so far too).
Here are the steps I've done (let me know if I did it wrong):
1. I've downloaded
de-de.txt from GitHub.
2. I've put
de-de.txt into folder
/perch/addons/lang (as a forum post suggested to do so).
3. I've selected
de-de.txt in Perch's language settings dropdown (
de-de appeared as it should, so that I could select it).
4. After saving the changes, nothing changed on the UI, everything was English, as before – with exactly the same strings.
5. After logging out, and refreshing the login page the Deutsch translation appeared correctly. After signing in, English language was displayed again though
de-de was still active in language settings. Refreshing the pages within the admin didn't help either – only on the login page.
What am I doing wrong? How can I make the chosen language take effect everywhere on the UI?
Note, that I've also tried creating a new language file by duplicating and slightly modifying the original Perch version 3
en-gb.txt for a test, but the same happened – so that using language files originally created for Perch version 2 or 3 doesn't have an impact on the above.
Thanks in advance!
