I noticed one huge bug in firmware. File polski.diff is full translated. I used for translation and each one field was written. But when i have downloaded Rockbox 21.08.07 and change on polish language, I saw blank fields by icon e.g . Recording (Nagrywanie), Radio FM. It seems like polski.lng is not synchronizated properly with FW or you have a problem with compilation. In attachement, you have screendumps. Odd things is that, in polski.lng e.g. "Nagrywanie" isn't there, but in polski.diff it is. Maybe if you give me original english language file, I will translate it step by step. In my opinion it'll be safer.
Could you help me in this problem?

Greets, Pawel Wysocki.

I forget about, that I'm using Sansa e260.

Yes, I see this problem. It's actually due to how the translation page is set up. You have probably not paid close attention to some of the fields - and it can be a bit confusing, I admit.

I think I'll be able to fix it automatically, so there's no need to start over for now.

Ok, I was worried about it, because some of my friends and not only them, were asking about "normal translation". You know "English is veeery difficult to learn".

"I've noticed that polish language is working properly only in r14414-070821. Next builds still includes bug with empty fields. I've checked this up. I can't help in this. You must work this out why is this happening."

I don't understand what you mean by this. The last change to polski.lang was in r14414. Since then, the Polish language has remained the same. Are you saying that r14414 works fine, but later versions do not? If so, this is not a problem with the language file, but I highly doubt this to be the case. I urge you to retest with a current build, as I suspect you may not have.

Please also state which specific language IDs are showing up blank.

I do know why this happened: Because you hadn't followed the instructions and left strings untouched that should have been changed. If my automatic fix didn't do it, I'm afraid I can't do more, and you'll have to go through the language file yourself and fix the phrases that aren't correctly translated.

Is this still an issue with the current build?
