Error #2: Invalid Locale

When LocalyzerQA shows an Invalid Locale error, it means that the locale set up in the Application does not correspond to a locale in Localyzer (LocalyzerExpress or a Jenkins based system).

For example, let's say that

  • in LocalyzerExpress, the locale for Portuguese is mapped to 'por', so that a translated file will be in the form resources_por.json (the same goes for other file types like .properties, .resx, etc.).
  • In LocalyzerQA, the only locales available are Portuguese (Portugal), or pt-PT, and Portuguese (Brazil) or pt-BR when setting up the Application. The user picked Portuguese (Portugal), or pt-PT

The LocalyzerExpress por locale will not match the LocalyzerQA pt-PT. Hence this error message.

Checking the locales match

  • You can see the exact locale code (pt-PT) in the Review for an Application.
  • You can see the locales handled by Localyzer on the backend (either LocalyzerExpress or a Jenkins based system) as you click on the error in the PostEdit page. It will list the expected locales, for example:
 Target Locales: de-DE,fr,fr-BE,ja,no,por

Watch out for some locales, as their code are more likely to vary from system to system :

  • Norwegian: no/NO, nb/NO, nn/NO ...
  • Serbian: sr/BA, sr/ME, sr/RS, sr/Latn/BA, sr/Latn/ME, sr/Latn/RS
  • Indonesian: in/ID, id/ID
  • Hebrew: iw/IL, he/IL

Possible Corrective Action

If possible, change the locale in LocalyzerExpress or Localyzer to be a locale supported by LocalyzerQA, here pt, or pt-PT. Those are the standard locale as per Locale ISO Codes.

This may require a change in the code locale framework.
