/ Id-Extras Forum / Translate script is removing the + character
May 17, 2023 at 12:05 pm #7373Ana
Hello, we are finding a problem when translating some paragraphs that contain the + character. This character is removed in the English translation. We tried using [[+]] , but still it removed the + in the translated document. We also added the + symbol in the glossary but still it does not work. Can you please tell us how to resolve it?
Thanks and regardsMay 18, 2023 at 3:38 am #7376ArielKeymaster
I’ll need a few more details:
1. Are you using the DeepL Translate or Google Translate script?
2. Which language are you translating from, and which version of English is the target language?
3. Can you paste the full paragraph that is causing the issue so that I can try it myself?

we are using DeepL Translate. We are translating from Spanish to English. We finally solved the issue. Thanks so much. RegardsMay 29, 2023 at 4:04 pm #7392ArielKeymaster
That’s good to hear. Did you figure out what was causing the issue? (It might be helpful for others to know as well.)

Hi, we fix the issue by replacing the + character by the %2b symbol when creating the txt file. And in the glosary we added the following translation: %2b -> +
This is not a final solucion but at least it works.
Hope this helps other users.

Interesting. As I mentioned, if you pasted a paragraph with some text that is failing for you, I’ll be happy to test and see if I can figure out what’s going on.May 30, 2023 at 5:51 pm #7407ArielKeymaster
Thanks for reporting this issue.
I’ve just posted a fix, so please download the latest version of DeepL Translate (it’s version 3.1.4): https://www.id-extras.com/shopping-cart/my-account/
This fixes the issue of + signs turning into spaces. So you should no longer need to use the Dictionary function as a workaround!
Let me know how it goes and if this solves the issue for you.
