I'm trying out a new theme and it seems to not get the translations properly. If I search for the English phrase in my files, I can find:
"You have no items to compare.","Sie haben keine Artikel auf der Vergleichsliste."
within the file: Mage_Catalog.csv app/design/frontend/MYTHEME/default/locale/de_DE/ basically that should already show the German sentence, right?
Additionally I added a translate.csv which seems to be not working as well.
Could this be an issue with my theme or some Magento settings?
In my app/design/frontend/MYTHEME/default/template/catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml I see this code:
<?php else: ?> <p class="empty"><?php echo $this->__('You have no items to compare.') ?></p> <?php endif; ?>
which looks fine to me as well!? (This file is being used - if I change something in the file, it displays immediately on the site).
