Debugging Translations

When your store is dealing with multiple translations, sometimes you just want to see a list of which translations are coming from what modules. Magento doesn't offer a way to get this information without editing the core, so what I am about to do should only be done for debugging and then removed.

First, located:

  • File: app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Translate.php
  • Class: Mage_Core_Model_Translate
  • Function: translate()

Then, right before the line "return $result;", put the following snippet of code:

$logModule = str_pad($module, 25, "-", STR_PAD_RIGHT);
$logInString = str_pad($text, 150, "-", STR_PAD_RIGHT);
$logOutString = str_pad($result, 200, " ", STR_PAD_RIGHT);
Mage::log($logModule . '>' . $logInString . '>' . $logOutString, null, 'translate.log');

This will, for every request, write a bunch of lines to the translate.log file under /var/log.

The file will looks something like:

After you figure out which module is displaying the translation, remove the lines of code from Mage_Core_Model_Translate and be on your merry way!

  1. In India, on my cell phone, I can dial 123# and my current balance will
    pop up on an iPhone simply as simply as a Nokia 1100 function telephone.
    The most effective part is that “star dialing” doesn’t cost the
    caller anything – and no call ever will get terminated.

  2. Sit and move on to work creating goals down, figuring out your market and
    deciding why you’re carrying out what you want to accomplish.
