I'm not sure about this ticket. On the one hand I see where you're coming from, it's a waste translating these separate and identical JSON files for each page. But on the other hand I see why it is working that way. As far as the CMS is concerned those pages really are separate, even though in reality they all only contain a single include.

It seems to me the problem is more with how we've chosen to create those pages,,,,,, and

  • Perhaps there's a different way we can create those pages that doesn't result in the same waste?
  • Perhaps there's a way for the CMS to automatically, or manually, avoid submitting JSON files that are identical? (But how do we make this intuitive, and avoid things going wrong if the page's contents diverge?)

I agree that it's an issue (not only for the homepage on that strings from included files are duplicated in the translation file of the page they are included in. Though, with the current approach, I'm not sure how we could easily fix that. But we probably have to.

However, the resulting translation file shouldn't probably be located under locales/*/index.json as that would refer to pages/index.tmpl which just coincidentally doesn't have own strings, but otherwise would introduce a conflict here. So the resulting translation file here should rather be located under locales/*/includes/index.json (or something like that).
