On the advice of my predecessor, I have marked the offending lines as comments by adding the prefix "# " with Notepad++. Then, the robot accepted my translation with the comment that 3 messages were still untranslated.

Regards, Jaap Verhage (translator for the Dutch language version of PSPP).

I've pulled all translations from translationproject.org and commited them to master

Jaap and Mindaugas report the same problem:

This has been addressed in two commits:


which produce the following changed pspp.pot file outputs

#: src/language/stats/factor.c:1758
#, no-c-format
msgid "% of Variance"
msgstr ""

#: src/language/stats/factor.c:1760
#, no-c-format
msgid "Cumulative %"
msgstr ""

#: src/language/stats/t-test-indep.c:273
#, no-c-format
msgid "95% Confidence Interval of the Difference"
msgstr ""

#: src/language/stats/crosstabs.q:1367
#, no-c-format
msgid "95% Confidence Interval"
msgstr ""

#: src/libpspp/zip-reader.c:503
#, c-format
msgid ""
"%s: name mismatch between central directory (%s) and local file header (%s)"
msgstr ""

As far as I have seen it in the mailing lists we have the following updated translations:

Ukrainian: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/pspp-dev/2020-08/msg00031.html
Greek: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/pspp-dev/2020-08/msg00040.html
Dutch: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/pspp-dev/2020-08/msg00046.html
Lithuanian: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/pspp-dev/2020-08/msg00047.html

I think we should merge the updated translations and then upload a new pot maybe from a nightly build because the translators cannot finish the translations.

I reopened this and maybe we can close it once the fixed pot file reaches the translation project

There are wrongly c-formatted strings and at least one typo in the current string catalog. Please see the patch attached.

Thanks in advance for reviewing and fixing these issues.
