Not a bug Translated phrases not always being sent in email


Well-known member
The following add-on called Weekly Digest:

has a problem with not always using the translated phrases. In this situation the foreign language phrase will randomly work.

The Weekly Digest's sends emails via XenForo Cron to members who have been active on the forum for the past 30 days, so typically on average about 100 to 1000 emails are sent once a week.

What I don't understand is why sometimes the translated phrases are being sent and sometime the English default phrase is being sent.

Correct email would look like this:


The incorect email looks like this:

That just looks like it's sending the English (or master) language version. It's not really some phrases -- it's the whole thing.

As a developer, you control the language that is used to send the mail. It defaults to the language in use by the current page. If you're sending mails to a particular user, you should be setting the mail object to their language.
