Problem with à or à in translation

Problem with à or à in translation

Tuesday 12 June 2012 6:24:54 pm - 3 replies


I try to add a word in my translation

        <source>Return to</source>
        <translation>Retourner à </translation>

When i put it without à or with à , it doesnt work , but "Retourner a" without accent works ,

I would like to know if there is someone who has ever the same problem?

Thanks in advence.

à should work - it's already all over the french translation file...

Are you using linguist to enter the translations or something else?

You can always try and use htmlentities, I've done that before.

Edit: changed ezlupdate to linguist - d'oh.

Hi Steven 

Thank you very much for ur answer,

in fact this is very odd to me!!

in my translation.ts file , when i write


        <source>Return to</source>
        <translation>Retourner Ã</translation>

it doesnt work and the result is "Return to",

when i try any other accent it works!!!!!!

like, just to see the result i tried é i tried ê  i tried everything and all of them works except Ã

Very very Bizarre!!!

i copied

        <source>Return to</source>
        <translation>Retourner Ã</translation>


in the part:   design/ezwebin/content/history


       <li><a href={$node.parent.url_alias|ezurl}>{"Return to"|i18n('design/ezwebin/content/history')}{$}</a></li>


just because i had seen a "Return to History" in that context!

and it worked!

I really don't understand why it happened? But happy to have the result!
