.po file not finding strings

  1. Hi there. I am using a Norwegian translation for Gravity forms, and noticed that some strings are not translated (Enter Email + Confirm Email). When trying to update the .po file via Poedit, it will not add these strings, so I had to manually translate these strings in common.php.

    Any idea why this is not picked up by the .p-file?

  2. Those two fields specifically are not translatable and can be changed using these filters:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_email_confirm

    Don't edit common.php. You will lose those changes when the plugin is updated.

  3. Hi! We are also having problems with translating some of the strings to Norwegian.
    Examples: "Errors have been highlighted below." and "This field is required."

    Is there a list of all the strings that can't be translated in the .po file and what filters to use?

  4. The filters are all listed on this page:

    For example, the validation message:
