Error when translating pages

Roland Kirpal asked on May 25, 2016 12:35

Hello everyone.

I've created a translation submission for multiple pages. For one of the submitted pages I have a translated xlf file. I checked the content and it contains the correct translation.

I uploaded this xlf file for the corresponding page in the translation transmission. Now the status for the page is Translated: Yes. Then I clicked on Process translations. After processing, the page was created for the target culture. However, the page had still the content of the source language!

I deleted the page for this culture and I basically repeated the process of uploading the translated file and processing the translation. But then I simply get an error message (something like) "Error while importing the translation". Also the status of the transmission is set to "Error while importing". I don't know why. There are no details in the error message or in the error log application.

Does anyone have experience with these two errors (not translated page & error while importing) or any idea what caused them or what I can do?

I'm using Kentico 8.2 with the latest hotfix.

Thanks in advance. Roland

Hi Roland, What is the xliff file you are importing like? What is its content? Does it contain the target tabs with the translated text? It should be like this:

<source><![CDATA[Home]></source><target><![CDATA[Translated text]></target>

So, the translation is taken from the "target" elements for given culture.
For the second error - are there any more details logged in the Event log application?

Hi Juraj,

Thank you for your response.

Yes, the xlf file contains both the source and target data. It looks like this:

<xliff version="1.2">
<file original="cms.document;1822" source-language="de-DE" target-language="en-GB" datatype="htmlbody">
    <trans-unit id="title">
      <source><![CDATA[Das ist ein Test.]]></source>
      <target><![CDATA[This is a test.]]></target>

Unfortunately, the error is not logged to the Event log application.

Would it be possible to send us the translation zip package to Also, if a temporary access to the admin UI is possible - it would be much appreciated.

In the email message, please refer to this thread.

Thank you!
