Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Maybe try to reload entry level, or atleast reinitiate all the widgets

Hi! Re-initialization of the widgets not solved the problem... alt text It still showing texts in "en" culture. But if I restart game with -culture=ru-RU - it showing texts in needed culture, ie my translation works correctly.

@Arthur Khusnutdinov, did you solve it?

For people with this kind of problem and similar, somethings worth checking out (I stumbled upon two of them):

  • Remember to compile your translations (I do it on the Localization Dashboard)

  • In Project Settings > Packaging > Packaging > Advanced Settings check if your translations are checked in the Localizations to Package list (easier to see pressing Show localized)

  • In the same place, set Internationalization Support to something that covers all your languages. In my case (pt-BR), I thought EFIGS would do the trick, as Portuguese has similar glyphs to Spanish. But no. It's a very specific setting. So, I had to use All.

  • The culture/language won't change in editor, so test in Standalone Preview. For VR you need to build the project, unfortunately.

Hello, I don't know if it could helps you but by my side (UE 4.11.2) : To preview a culture without restarting UE I use the "Preview in Editor" Button in the Translation Editor :

  1. Enter -culture=it in the console command on the OutputLog tab (here it : italian for the exemple)

  2. open The Localization dashBoard

  3. Edit Translation you want to preview

  4. Then Clic on the "Preview in Editor" Button Preview in Editor
