I am using an exposed filter to select rows that are of a type only. I have translated the node type names, using the Translation Interface, and I can see these translations working elsewhere.

Though, the content type names in the exposed filter are not translated.

different issue but it can be related: content-type names are only translated in the admin pages, impossible to print it in a view or a node...

Seems to work (using latest git version + views 3.x-dev + i18n 1.x-dev + variable 2.x-dev)

This is indeed not possible at the moment: In views, the node type labels in exposed forms and as a field are translated with t(). This is bad, because node type labels are user defined strings and therefore need special handling and not just t().

The attached patch fixes this.

It copies the node type field and filter handlers over to i18nview and properly translates the node type label there. The new handlers are registered in place of the default handlers, so it works without changing the concerned views (caches have to cleared, of course).

This is really looking fine in terms of views code!

Even I haven't tried the code, but that is RTBC, when you don't consider the 100% strict core documentation/code style requirements.

I just carefully applied the patch manually and it did not work. The filter by content type said its handler was broken. Since this code dates from Feb 2013 and it is now May 2014 this might be due to changes in Views making this code break now. Which also means this patch is not suited for the long run...

By the way, how come this RTBC patch never got committed?

i18nviews provides additional views handlers. We do not overwrite existing views handler to avoid conflicts with contrib. Please follow this pattern. Check out i18nviews_views_data_alter_i18n_taxonomy for examples.

Adding the handlers, instead of overwriting them.
Added a node type argument handler.

I have applied patch (manually), and it works.

The new "Content: Type (translated)" option is available in both fields list and filters list, and they both works as expected.

It would be nice to have this commited.

It looks like this patch has been committed to the alpha1 branch but I don't see any option in the Translation Interface at admin/config/regional/translate/translate to translate content type names. If I search for 'Articles', one of my content types, I don't see anything under "Content: Type (translated)" or any possible string that would relate to a Views exposed filter or a content type name. I have il8n_views (v7.x-3.0-alpha1) enabled and have been translating most of my views successfully.

Other translation modules that are enabled:

Is there something else that should be enabled or what am I missing?

This issue is about exposed views filters.

You have problem translating content type names with Entity Translation.

Try to "google" for: "entity translation" "content type" name
