Fixes issue where translations are not allowed to be reset by a theme or db change to the original english text.


In Magento you have the ability to change translations in many ways, traditionally it would be through that the system prioritises translations as follows:

  • The modules own translations
  • Translate packs translations
  • Theme translations
  • Database (inline translations)

However if you have a translate pack translating a word, and you as a merchant or developer want to change it back in the theme or database translations, currently you can't because the _addData method currently validates if the original text and translation are the same.


Manual testing scenarios

  1. Setup a store with a translate pack including a word used for translation in a JS file, as an example you can use "Close", which in your language pack should be set to something else.
  2. Setup a new theme with the language you picked and translate the text used in JS file. And set it to be the original value of this. So you set "Close":"Close"
  3. Download the FE translate file js-translation.js from your theme using a URL like: pub/static/Version/frontend/Vendor/Theme/Locale/js-translation.js
  4. You should now see that the value: "Close" is set to the language packs value, and not missing as you would expect so the string can go back to its default value.
