U4-4179 - Buttons not showing correct "friendly" text in backend (v7.0.3)

Relates to: U4-4095

Upgraded a VS 2013 Umbraco project from 7.0.1 to 7.0.2 using Nuget. After upgrade (and after subsequent upgrade to 7.0.3) some buttons in the backend show placeholder text instead of the correct text. For example, the "Actions" button that is displayed when editing content shows up as [general_actions]. Also, on the login screen the link that should say "log in below" shows [login_instruction].

Clearing the browser cache (and even running on a browser that has never been used) has no effect. Occasionally, but not often, the buttons (and links) will show correctly, but I have not been able to find a pattern in when they show correctly.

In searching the project for the text [general_actions], the only place that I can find that text is in a file called umbraco.testing.js in the umbraco/js folder. It appears in a function called "getLanguageResource".

I have attached JPGs showing two examples of the incorrect buttons/links.

I ran into this problem, myself and sorted it out a few minutes ago. I switched my user's language from the default UK English to US English just prior to the error. You need to ensure that you've installed the appropriate language pack prior to changing your language.

The issue was not due to not having the appropriate language pack installed, but it was related to using US English. Apparently there are missing keys in the English US Language file. This is detailed in [U4-4095|http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-4095] and in [this post|http://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-7/using-umbraco-7/47613-Umbraco-7-Missing-Labels?p=0]. Supposedly this has been fixed in 7.1.0.
