We are having problems with translations on our store for our multi lingual sites.
They used to work ok but when we add modules it seems that the translations are now lost.
As an example "Add to Cart" on the product page used to translate on our French site to "Ajouter au panier" as that was called from the /app/locale/fr_FR/Mage_Catalog.csv file.
When we add a third party module called AW_Productpdates.xml the language on the French store returns to "Add to Cart" and the scope for the translation looks like it changes and is looking for "Add to Cart" in the language file for "AW_Productupdates". As "Add to Cart" has not been translated it will just use the English version.
Is this normal or should it still try and look for "Add to Cart" translation still within the app/locale/fr_FR/ folder?
If it helps, I am still doing some overrides in my /app/frontend/theme/default/locale/fr_FR/translate.csv file but I don't want to replicate the translations if they are already within the /app/locale/fr_FR/ folder.
