I'm updating Turkish translation and found that Transifex convert ellipsis character into _QQ_ notation which latest Joomla! releases does not support and break translation.

Lines are below for backend source file. More could follow while I was working on other files.


Ellipsis which Transifex convert into _QQ_
File /administrator/languages/en-GB.com_community.ini

Line 964
COM_COMMUNITY_PROFILE_FIELD_REQUIRED_CHECK_WARN="A field in “Required” should be also set at registration."

Line 1409
COM_COMMUNITY_PROFILE_REQUIRED_TIPS="Set to “Yes” if you want to make this field required for all profiles."

Line 1727
COM_COMMUNITY_GROUPS_EMAIL_NEW_MEMBER_JOINED="%1$s joined your group, %2$s \n\nTo view the group, follow the link below:\n\n <a href=_QQQ_{url}_QQQ_>{url}</a>"

Line 1834
COM_COMMUNITY_EMAIL_IMPORT_USER_PLUGIN_SETTING_ENABLED_ERROR="To import users from a CSV file, you must disable \"Notification Mail to User\" in \"User - Joomla\" plugin."

Line 1836
COM_COMMUNITY_EMAIL_IMPORT_USER_WELCOME_BODY="Hi {target},\n\nYou have been added to our online community on {site_name}\n<a href=_QQQ_{site_url}_QQQ_>{site_url}</a>\n\nThis is your username: {username}\nAnd this is your password:{password}\n\nLog in to the website to complete your profile and connect with others. You'll be able to create groups and events as well.\nWe look forward to seeing you in our community!"

Line 1855
COM_COMMUNITY_MASS_EMAIL_NOTIFICATION_TITLE="New message from admin, check your email with the title \"%1$s\""

Line 1882
COM_COMMUNITY_TROUBLESHOOTS_CLEANUP_STREAM="Clean up \"a Guest\" activity stream items by removing all items belonging to an unidentified (deleted) user"

Hi, Kaya.

Thank you for contacting us and reporting this issue.
Some of lines are using “” that are safe when "" are not. Please, take a closer look when translating - you may copy those signs or change them to simple '.
Escaping quotation marks wont work so I converted all of them into _QQQ_ in source file.
Change should be reflected on Transifex soon and lines will need to be translated again.


- Instead of saying: 'it's not working', explain the problem in detail.
- Screenshots with the URL visible in them and the problem marked are more than welcome.
- Tell us how to replicate the problem, we can't fix it if we can't find it.
- Make sure that your site/server meets JomSocial System Requirements
- Make sure to setup JomSocial Cron Job
- Always provide us with access details to the backend and ftp. We need it to debug problems.
- If you have a similar problem, but a solution you found isn't working, open a new thread instead of 'merging' with an existing one.

- Use the "Thank You" feature on any post that helped you

Thank you. I updated Transifex, used new translation file and found that I missed last one in /administrator/languages/en-GB.com_community.ini
Once again manual update did the translation work. So backend com_community will be finished after you fix this string.

Line 43
COM_COMMUNITY_BLOCK_USER_TIPS="Choosing “Yes” will block the user from your JomSocial site."

HI, Kaya.

Thank you for your work.
That string is fine. Just note the difference between " and “. You can't use first one as it will break the file. But you can use second one safely.

Hello,
Please consider using same punctuation standart between strings (as _QQQ_ or whatever).
Translators easily miss the difference between " and “ while reading.
Typing the character is another issue to solve (each nations keyboard layout a little different and they can't find how to type the right character).
And finding what is wrong in the broken translation file is painful sometimes.
So please...
