U4-6510 - Norwegian labels, dictionary and language in 7.2.4

Hi again, tested 7.2.4 now, it's still an issue with Norwegian language:

  • The labels are back using #label, but I had to change languages on settings to "Norsk" not "Norsk (bokmål) (Norge)", resulting in language id "no" instead of "nb_no"
  • When using "Norsk (bokmål) (Norge)" I got an error on Umbraco.Core.Services.LocalizedTextServiceFileSources.TryConvert2LetterCultureTo4Letter
  • When using "Norwegian" on "Language" on my user all buttons and labels translated by the \umbraco\Config\Lang shows as [buttons_saveAndPublish] etc (but the labels translated in dictionary still works)
  • In UmbracoTraceLog I get an error saying: Umbraco.Core.Services.LocalizedTextService - [Thread 8] The culture specified no was not found in any configured sources for this service

A follow up on this issue.

-Changed the userLanguage in the database on umbracoUser table to "nb_no" instead of "no" (no is set when choosing "Norwegian" in Umbraco backend on a given user). -Result: Labels/captions from \umbraco\Config\Lang are translated!


-Labels from the dictionary are translated correctly using "Norsk", with language id "no" not "nb_no" -Labels from \umbraco\Config\Lang are translated correctly using "nb_no" as userLanguage not "no"

Hopes this clarify :-)

I have the same issue as you Kristian. To use a wokaround where I manually need to update a database table is not an option in my scenario.

My workaround was to rename the file /Config/lang/no.xml to /Config/lang/nb.xml

Labels from the dictionary are then translated correctly using "Norwegian (Bokmål) [nb]" Labels from \umbraco\Config\Lang are automatically translated correctly

(Note: If nuget auto package restore is enabled, the no.xml file will be downloaded on publish, resulting in a duplicate key exception)

Hope there will be a fix for this soon.

Still an issue in 7.2.5

Followup. Now using "no" gives correct translation on labels in Umbraco, the only error now seems to be that the \umbraco\Config\Lang\no.xml file has wrong culture:



And everything seems fine if you are using "Norwegian" in the Language dialog (attached image).

Instead of renaming the culture like you did Kristian, I renamed the file. I think this is more correct because "no" is not a valid culture name i think.
