Issues with imported strings

Marcelo Ghelman
Hi.

I would like to talk about issues with imported strings.
Sometimes some strings already translated appear, with IMPORTED instead of
an author.
Where do these translations come from?
I don't know about other languages, but in pt-BR almost all of them come
with errors and need to be fixed.
Personally, I would prefer that these strings be left empty to appear in
the "Missing" filter.
But since many of them already exist, Pontoon could add an option to
include 'IMPORTED' in the translation author filter to make it easy to find.

Marcelo

Hi Marcelo,

The strings that appear as imported come from the Mercurial
repository. If nobody else from your team is working on the
repository, it means they're automatically generated from existing
strings when migrating to Fluent. Can you point at examples of such
strings with issues?

Re: Issues with imported strings

Francesco Lodolo [:flod]
Example for pt-BR:
https://pontoon.mozilla.org/pt-BR/firefox/all-resources/?search=ights-webservices-term-3&string=195356

The string was imported 6 months ago during the migration from an
existing DTD file to Fluent. The source file doesn't exist anymore,
but it's here
https://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/pt-BR/diff/f87b62b6ea7f4b30a649d9193ec8cdbd4f3f0c0c/toolkit/chrome/global/aboutRights.dtd#l1.90

If your locale was not on Pontoon, some strings will result as
imported at the time the project was set up (~ 3 years ago for pt-BR).

The Mercurial repository is the source of truth. What's in the
repository ships in the product (i.e. that string was shipping in
Firefox), and that's reflected in Pontoon by the string being
approved.
Having this content not being in an approved state goes against that very model.

Also consider that, over time, we migrated over 3 thousand strings,
multiplied by over 100 languages. It doesn't make sense to ask every
team to go through them, given that they were already approved in the
first place.

Having said that, there is a bug on file to be able to filter imported
strings in Pontoon and make them easier to find
