Description (last modified by kzar)

How to reproduce

  1. Change the target translations of a crowdin project you have access to to e.g. German only.
  2. Go to the repo "adblockpluschrome".
  3. Temporarily change "basename" in "" to this-is-very-much-a-test-proje.
  4. Try to update the target translations for the project:
    ./ -t chrome setuptrans <project-api-key>

Observed behaviour

The call succeeds, when visiting the temporarily configured project and checking the target translations, nothing has changed.

Expected behaviour

The call should succeed and the crowding project should have every currently available language in adblockpluschrome configured as a target translation.


  • This will also break the Crowdin integration in the CMS repository. This might not be recognized due to the tests mocking the Crowdin API.
  • Uploading new files is also failing.

Tristan and I were chatting about this in IRC, it looks like Crowdin have changed their API. Firstly the language list is now inside the data key, this change fixed that problem. Secondly the add-file endpoint is returning 400 when I try to add files using the translate command. It's more than possible there were other breaking changes too :(, I didn't have any more time to look into it.

It looks like we'll have to make changes to both buildtools and cms to get our translation integrations working again.
