Forum .LRN Q&A: Minor data loss on translation server
I understand your horror in this discovery (after the amazing work you have done over the last few weeks), but Peter did mention that he has nightly backups. This problem you have discovered should be fixable. I recommend stopping any translation until Peter can take a look at it and let us know what went wrong and if it can be fixed (I have hope that it can be fixed).
Danny Elmassih (at WEG) did AR_LB (arabic). I believe he had done about 2,000 (all the ones avilable a few weeks ago) and there are only 1600 or so now. Danny finished his project with me, could you see if you could recover some more of his work?
I am not complaining, I think your are doing a good job, is just that I want to make sure that we assign people/resources appropriately.
I would not hold off with translations. We will proceed very cautiously with future upgrades and we will have a better process in place. I will investigate any loss of AR_LB messages.
as far as lost edits go I've been trying to investigate that a little. I have set up a server running the messages that were in the server on the 29:th of october, before most of the upgrade work was done. I have added a page that shows you recent translation work. Please compare the following two pages, the first one being the production data, and the second one being the data on the 29:th of October:
It seems on the production machine edits before october have been lost. Anja, if you could point me to one or two example messages to work with that are lost (or rather not up-to-date) on the production server that would be very helpful.
Thanks for your patience!
As you might have noticed chinese was finished during the weekend
I was looking att the chinese interface. Althought it has 600 more tokens translated than Spanish, it looks as if it were very incomplete. Why is that?
Make sure you are on the right locale. There are two Chinese locales in the system right now:
Chinese (ZH) = 2093 translations
Chinese (TW) = 60 translations
