Description Taishin Kin 2002-12-04 14:37:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
up2date partially fails to show translated messages while the locale files (i.e.
*.mo) have almost completely translated.
For example, the following part in the file "gui.glade" is 
shown in Japanese for the title part but plain English for the text part:
<widget class="GnomeDruidPageEdge" id="startPage">
  <property name="title" translatable="yes">Welcome to Red Hat Update
  <property name="text" translatable="yes">This is Red Hat Update Agent.  It
will assist you in updating
your Red Hat Linux system with the latest software available
from Red Hat Network.

anything, click &quot;CANCEL.&quot;</property>
I'm reporting this bug based on Japanese locale environment.
But the same phenomenon would be observed in other locale env.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date from GUI or in command line (in Japanese locale)
2. "RedHat Update Agent" window is shown

Actual Results:  check that the title part is shown in Japanese and the text
part is shown in English.

Expected Results:  The text part should be shown in Japanese

Additional info:

This is not because of the text part does not have translation.
The translated text resides in up2date.mo file.
But up2date somehow fails to retrieve the translated messages.
