[solved]I try to load translation file (.qm file), but nothing happened

  • I have three files, main.cpp, main.qml, MainPage.qml.
    First, I use @lupdate main.qml MainPage.qml -ts translation_zh_CN.ts@
    Then I translate the ts file in Qt Linguist
    Then I use @lrelease translation_zh_CN.ts@
    Then I add translation_zh_CN.qm to my resource.qrc file
    my main.cpp is like this
    @#include <QtGui/QApplication>
    #include "qmlapplicationviewer.h"
    #include <QDebug>

    Q_DECL_EXPORT int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    QScopedPointer<QApplication> app(createApplication(argc, argv));

    QLocale test = QLocale::system&#40;&#41;;
    qDebug(&#41; << "System locale:" <<;;
    QmlApplicationViewer viewer;
    viewer.rootContext(&#41;->setContextProperty("installPath", "file:///" + QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath() + "/");
    QTranslator myTr;
    //myTr.load("qrc:/transtation_" + QLocale::system(&#41;.name(&#41;&#41;;
    myTr.load("qrc:/translation_" + QLocale::system(&#41;.name(&#41;&#41;;
    return app->exec(&#41;;

    the qDebug() shows my locale is zh_CN, but the app just doesn't show my translation.

    You have the line
    myTr.load("qrc:/transtation_" + QLocale::system().name());

    where "translation_" is misspelled. It's probably not seeing the proper file to load.

  • Thank you. But after I change the misspelling, the result is still the same.

    Does it make a difference if you load the translator before you create your QApplicationViewer?

  • Thank you. It works when I put them before I create QApplicationViewer. Also, there is something tricky that I have to use.
    @ myTr.load(":/translation_" + QLocale::system().name());@
    instead of
    @ myTr.load("qrc:/translation_" + QLocale::system().name());@

    Is there difference between them? I used to think they are the same.

  • How did you solve it i have a similar issue, it works in debug but not in release ... I have it before the viewer as well but it does not help ..
