Translation php code cleanup

After installing “Codestyling Localization” and scanning the source files of Event Espresso 3.1.36.P, there were several problems encountered, which should be cleaned in EE php source files:

1. multiple text domains are used, besides ‘event-espresso’; probably it is unintentional, the list being composed of:
twentyten, event_espress, debug-bar, default
These strings totaling 61.

2. Strings which you add in newer EE versions take a while to get to GlotPress. Currently, there are about 66 strings (except the 61 above) which are part of ‘event-espresso’ text domain, but are not present on GlotPress. This leads to delays in translation availability.

Thank you.

3. String ‘Add Additional Attendee’ is present in the source code as __(‘Add Additional Attendee’, ‘event_espresso’), but on GlotPress there is no sign of this, is this the effect of no. 2.?

Is it possible that you fix point 1. in the next EE 3 release version? I am planning to launch in the next weeks and this translation issues are keeping me blocked.
I am willing to give you all my support for this task, it a simple translation task like:

before: __(‘Price Type:’)
after: __(‘Price Type:’, ‘event_espresso’)


before: _e(‘Juridico’,’event_espress’)
after: _e(‘Juridico’,’event_espresso’)

The plugin which I have mentioned really helps in identifying the source files and situations.
Thank you.

We went through and standardized the text domains for the front end for version .37.

Thanks, I appreciate it. Any opinion about why 2. and 3. are happening?

Glotpress needs some updating.
