#4713 closed (fixed)

Simple tags don't have a translation hook - as opposed to the documentation

Reported by: Indy Owned by: nobody
Component: Internationalization Version: master
Severity: Keywords: Template, Translation, I18N
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The documentation states that template tags offers a translation hook and accept _('...') instead of a constant string. This doesn't work for simple tags because resolve_variable isn't aware of translations.
If you trying to do so, you receive the following error:

VariableDoesNotExist at ...
Failed lookup for key [_('...

The attached patch is very simple and resolves this problem.
