big localization bug in vendor portal?

When I uploaded one of my apps the first time, and it accepted all the fields for app names, descriptions and keywords.


I recently uploaded an update, then went into the descriptions to update the keywords, and all the localized app names were missing (except English).

So I re-entered all the localized names, along with the updated keywords, hit save, and everything was okay.


When I clicked the description tab again, the keywords were updated, but the localized names were missing again.


So every time I want to make a description or keyword change, I need to go through each localized language and re-enter the names or it won't let me save the changes.


I don't know if this is simply an inconvenience or if the localized names themselves aren't being applied to the app, making it harder to find apps in the App World.

Re: big localization bug in vendor portal?

I am not sure, but maybe for Name/Description there is a ticket - so you must wait until it will be accepted and then changes will be made. Probably kaywords are saved instantly.
As I said, I am not sure about it, but please check it.

Re: big localization bug in vendor portal?

I would submit an issue, but there's not specific place on Jira to do that for the app world:

On another point, my issue for localization in East Asian languages that I submitted to Jira in the beginning of January still hasn't gotten any response (BBTEN-647).  I'm unable to use any Asian characters in a C++ Cascades app.  Even sent along a sample app.


Maybe the BB guys are overloaded with bugs at this point?
