Description

2 months ago
pipnss.properties includes a few special strings with hard length limits
https://hg.mozilla.org/l10n/gecko-strings/file/default/security/manager/chrome/pipnss/pipnss.properties#l10

Once converted to UTF-8, the string needs to be shorter than the specified limit (32 or 64 bytes), otherwise it will be truncated in the interface.

There are currently some strings in your localization that exceed this limit and need to be fixed:

- Fips140SlotDescription (FIPS 140 ક્રિપ્ટોગ્રાફિક, કી અને પ્રમાણપત્ર સેવાઓ) is longer than 64 bytes (current length: 119 bytes)
- Fips140TokenDescription (સોફ્ટવેર સુરક્ષા ઉપકરણ (FIPS)) is longer than 32 bytes (current length: 69 bytes)
- InternalToken (સોફ્ટવેર સુરક્ષા ઉપકરણો) is longer than 32 bytes (current length: 65 bytes)
- LibraryDescription (PSM આંતરિક ક્રિપ્ટો સેવાઓ) is longer than 32 bytes (current length: 63 bytes)
- SlotDescription (PSM આંતરિક ક્રિપ્ટોગ્રાફિક સેવાઓ) is longer than 64 bytes (current length: 84 bytes)
- TokenDescription (સામાન્ય ક્રિપ્ટો સેવાઓ) is longer than 32 bytes (current length: 62 bytes)
- TokenDescription (સામાન્ય ક્રિપ્ટો સેવાઓ) is longer than 32 bytes (current length: 62 bytes)


Strings are available in this file in Pontoon

HOW TO FIX THIS BUG

To check the length of a string, you can use the Browser Console in Firefox:
1. Open Tools->Web Developer->Browser Console
2. In the input field at the bottom of the window copy and paste the following code, replacing YOURSTRING with your actual translation, keeping the surrounding quotes

(new TextEncoder('utf-8').encode('YOURSTRING')).length

3. Press enter

The number displayed is the current string length.

One important consideration: it might be impossible for some languages to come up with a reasonable translation within these limits, since the length in bytes does not match the length in characters. For example: "cookie" is 6 bytes, "కుకీలు" is 18 bytes.

In this case, it's better to keep the English text than a translation that won't be understandable because of truncations.

It is done. I changed to English only because it is not getting fitted in Gujarati according to bytes restriction.

Thanks Drashty. Sadly, that seems the only way to fix this bug for locales like Gujarati, using a different script.
