In Joomla 4.4.2 the Smart Search component translation doesn't work for any other language then english but it happens only for 6 translations: COM_FINDER_ADVANCED_TIPS_AND; COM_FINDER_ADVANCED_TIPS_INTRO; COM_FINDER_ADVANCED_TIPS_NOT; COM_FINDER_ADVANCED_TIPS_OR; COM_FINDER_ADVANCED_TIPS_OUTRO; COM_FINDER_ADVANCED_TIPS_PHRASE; When I try to modify them from ini file doesn't work. Someone knows why.

  • Do the translations exist in the language file for your language? Mar 11 at 23:25
  • Yes it is. The web site has now tree languages. English, French and Italian. Mar 12 at 9:26
  • If the translations are there then there may be a bug in Smart Search and perhaps an issue could be raised to highlight it? Mar 14 at 5:51
  • Yes. It is possible. I have three files com_finder.ini and the english one (52 lines) is different then others (58 lines). The six lines cited are missing inside it, but the output it's only that. Mar 14 at 19:24
  • Ensure all quotes inside these strings are properly escaped like \". Otherwise, ini translation won't work.
