[Bug 729631] Re: Date label on the indicator is partially untranslated



I've just updated Natty Beta and was trying to test the date and time
displayed in the panel. Now – the German translation seem to be released
(because I can see a change, that we, German translators made in the
relevant strings [1] [2]) but real testing can NOT be done because the
date & time settings dialog can NOT be opened – again. So at the moment,
I can only 'test' the standard display method, that is the combination
of weekday and time.

By the way, I think I have figured out, *how* these date and time
strings [1] [2] are meant to be used. The date/time displayed in the
panel is a combination of two parts, the date part and the time part.
These parts are put together by a special string like this: %s %s (see
string number 19 [3]). Because Germans like the date and time to be
separated by a comma, we put the comma in this string number 19, which -
as it turns out - was good! But sadly we made some appending commas to
the strings that are relevant for the date part, too. So that causes two
commas to be displayed there, now. However that is a translation bug,
that I'm going to fix now.

I'd like YOU to fix the problem with the non-launchable date/time
settings dialog - therefore I'll open a new bug for that issue, now.
However I realise that not everybody seems to be affected by this.

  Date label on the indicator is partially untranslated

Status in The Date and Time Indicator:
  Fix Released
Status in Unity Foundations:
  Fix Released
Status in “indicator-datetime” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

  I've got the indicator set to show the day if the week, day and month
  and time.

  For some reason the day of the week appears untranslated, whereas the
  day and month appear half translated as "5 de Mar" ('de' is in
  Catalan, 'Mar' in English). See the attached screenshot.

  I'm not sure where this translation is supposed to come from, from
  indicator-datetime or somewhere else.
