Steps to reproduce

Go to about;flags
Check any of the squares to modify configuration. 
at the bottom of the page this text shows up;

You need to restart your browser for changes to take effect.

We could not find this string as a resource so we believe this is hardcoded. Can you added as a resource so we can translate it properly?


When opening about:flags with Spanish (Spain) set as the default language, Service Workers is incorrectly translated as "trabajos de servicio". This translation is not just confusing, because nobody uses that name to refer to this feature, but does not make any sense at all.

Also, when a setting is changed, the banner at the bottom asking the user to restart the browser to apply the changes is not translated at all

The “Habilitar trabajos de servicios” is no longer in RS4 build. The second string should be localize and we are investigating.

  • Hi Joaquin,

    Thank you for the feedback.  I am not aware of what the proper translation should be.  Can you give guidance on that?  I know someone on our team will know but thought I would get the information from you as well.

    I will send your findings on to the team.  Thanks again,

    Steve

  • I would just say “Habilitar Service Worker” for that flag, and “Debes reiniciar el navegador para que se apliquen los cambios” for the restart text.
