Explicitly marking translation unit with !!FUZZY!! does not update corresponding translation page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a translatable page with at least one section
  2. Mark it for translation
  3. Translate a unit to some language
  4. Make change to the translatable page with that section you translated
  5. Mark the page for translation, do not check "skip fuzzy" checkbox
  6. Update the now fuzzy translation to "something else"
  7. Now mark the updated translation with !!FUZZY!! and save

Observed: the translation page still contains "something else". By normal rules it should contain the source text.

I didn't have time to check, but steps 4-6 could possibly be skipped with the same result.

Something that editors like is to remove a translation (e.g. a vandalism) without having to delete pages.

I don't think it's usually intentional. I have also noticed that it gets added even when you use rollback.

PageTranslation: Do renders for manually fuzzied units as well

After this edits done with a FUZZY would mean the page would be updated with the source text.
