The pt-pt translation of the Reader has been broken for a while, and I suspect this affects other locales:

The above reads: "1 comment" (correct) and "1 [the verb "to like", infinitive form]" (incorrect). This is because in English both forms are labeled Like while they are separate terms with very different function.

^ The above is a reflection of the lack of translated strings in local Calypso, but the string should now become translatable.


  • In either the Reader or in /posts's comment view, look for posts with exactly one like.
  • In English, everything should behave and look the same as without the patch.
  • With other locales, YMMV, but make sure that the translation of "1 Like" is sane.

Hi! I've found a possible matching string that has already been translated 30 times:
translate( 'Like', { context: 'verb: imperative'} ) ES Score: 11
See 2 additional suggestions in the PR translation status page

Help me improve these suggestions: react with 👎 if the suggestion doesn't make any sense, or with 👍 if it's a particularly good one (even if not implemented).

ℹ️ This string already exists with the following contexts:

  • null (no context)
  • comment

Would it make sense to reuse one of the above?

Thanks @mcsf! I'm sad the translation was busted all this time.

Any others that stand out?

Thanks for the quick review, @blowery!

Not that I remember, but I'll keep an eye out. I believe this was intro'd in f40617e (cc @shaunandrews).
