I have a 5000 pages multilingual site that was correctly configured, nodes & blocks & views were all showing the correct translation.
But I discovered today blocks and views are not showing up translations anymore.
I tripled checked parameters :

  • the correct translatable text formats are checked
  • the User interface text language detection weren't changed :
    • first by URL ( language prefix)
    • then user
    • browser
    • default.

If I try to update my translations, they are still here, saved in the database, but they don't show up !?!

I then updated related modules : config is now :

  • core 7.18
  • Views 7.x-3.7
  • Entity Translation 7.x-1.0-beta2
  • i18n 7.x-1.8
  • Views translation 7.x-3.x-dev

No result.

I could neither find any watchdog message related to that problem.

Where a hell could I search now ? Any help is really welcome.

Any updates on this issue? Did you resolve it?

No, despite all efforts I couldn't find the bug source yet.
And I had to deal with other deadlines so I let it for a while.
But any help would be highly appreciated, like where to put some watchdogs ?
i sent a question in drupal.stackexchange also with a few details more...

Same problem. I had assumed it was due to the modules Freepager and/or Om Maximenu, but this is sounding like something in the translation/internationalization modules. If we discover the cause, I'll post here.

Please do the same!

Same problem. Anyone NOT seeing this bug?

I posted this in 2 different places in April, due to the critical situation. So you can find more followers and ideas at Blocks and views not displaying translations anymore, especially from Jose Reyero, who's a major contributor to Drupal,as far as I know. I've been searching nights in April, but I had to leave it bugged for now, to honour other projects... I will work back on it again in november.

Since my issue seems to be with views blocks specifically, I'd like to keep this open at least until I figure out if this is a reproducible issue.

I debugged _block_render_blocks() as suggested by webflo on IRC. There's a lot I don't understand about i18n in Drupal, but in my views block, i18n_mode was set to 0. Could that be part of the issue?
