How do you stop IDE trashing your language translation files ?

Yet more IDE grief.


How do you stop this ridiculous IDE from trashing your .TS files ?.


Other than compile the file to a qm thing, it should not touch the source.



Give .TS file to human translator. They enter translation text from its source (not a TS file) into TS file, e.g. via text editor. Replace file in 'translations' folder with updated text.

Build project.


The IDE then proceeds to do things like

i) re-order the entries - only a minor pain but massively complicates the translators job

ii) decide all by itself that some text is not used in the app + deletes the text marking the ts entry as 'unfinished' simply because we have not actually written the code that references the text yet.


Thats like deleting some of your C code from the source files simply because youve not written the entire app which uses every line of code yet  - Please tell me this is a joke + that this so called 'behaviour' can be stopped.


Unimpressed to say the least
