Localization keys not generated



I'm quite confused about the localization on BalckBerry 10 cascade projects.

I've created several BalckBerry 10 cascade projets with the preivous bêtas of the SDK and everything worked great.

But my last projet was created with the Gold SDK (I don't know it this is important but that the only thing that changed) and the translation keys are not generated anymore.

To be more precise, the qml keys are generated but not the ones from C++.

In my main.cpp I have :


    // localization support

    QTranslator translator;

    QString locale_string = QLocale().name();

    QString filename = QString( "ProjectName_%1" ).arg( locale_string );

    if (translator.load(filename, "app/native/qm")) {

        app.installTranslator( &translator );



I use tr("text", "") to translate my texts in C++ files.


In my config.pri, I have :




lupdate_inclusion {

    SOURCES += \





Thus, all the keys from my qml files are generated but not the ones from ProjectName.cpp

I also tried to compare with my old projects to check the differences but I couldn't find the problem.


What am I missing there ?


Thank you!

Re: Localization keys not generated

As per my thread here:



You need to place:

lupdate_inclusion {
    SOURCES += \

In your (AppName).pro file.
