[Solved] Weird letters / punctuation problem

Postby dadionysos » Thu Dec 08, 2011 4:15 pm

Hello,

The free version of GTranslate is working fine, but now I have the pro version installed and it shows all kind of weird signs / punctuation and it doesn't translate all the sentences anymore. Any idea what the problem can be?

The address of my website is: http://www.ridemymtb.com/

Thnx in advance.

Hi,

For some reason your server replies with

Content-Type text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

header forcing it to use iso-8859-1 charset instead of utf-8.

Please contact your hosting provider and ask how can you force to use utf-8 or make it not force charset. Ex.

Content-Type text/html;

Thank you for you quick answer.

The charset is working now. No weird punctuations anymore. There is only a problem that some sentences are in Dutch when you have chosen German for example. Do I have to clean the cache or something?

Greets,

That should be solved over time. If you don't want to wait you can add force_translation=1 in the end of the URL and it will make the translation quickly. Ex. http://www.ridemymtb.com/de/?force_translation=1

How long is it goning to take normally? English seems to work fine, but I see at the top of the page sometimes the next error message: Cannot translate:

Any idea?

Hi,

I've checked the debug to find out the cause for that error and I think I know what it is. It seems that your template index.php file or some other file included into it uses a wrong encoding and there is an invisible "Â " character in there (non-breaking space or encoded "%C2%A0"). If you can give me temporary FTP access, I can try to find that file and fix the issue with it, so it will not pause the translation process.

The error messages are gone. The translation contains still some dutch sentences. But it takes some time you said earlier. I have to wait I quess.

Thank you for the good support.

Yes, it depends how frequently search engines index your site. It can take a week or two to translate everything and index all the languages.
