[4.5.1b1] non-localizable string [Some strings are dependent on iOS language, not in-app]

Hi All,

I just checked the new beta for 4.5.1 and realized that the Edit buttons (toolbar at the top), always shows up as Edit.
It doesn't seem to be localizable at this point.

    In italian version it's translated.
    I've many strings still untranslated in italian language even if they're all translated ...

    Just wondering: are you using iOS in Italian as well? I'm wondering whether this could come from the fact that I'm using iOS in English (with 1Password set to run in French).

    I think so.
    Yes i use iOS in italian too.
    Have you tried to switch iOS also in French (in setup>general>international>language) ?

    I was reluctant to do so… Most of the time, the localizations in the various apps I use myself drive me positively nuts :-> That's why I asked what language you used in iOs to really convince myself to go through the process :->

    I did it though and it confirms what I suspected after reading your post. The string is coming from iOS itself. It now says “Modifier”.
    Thanks for the info,

    Hi guys,

    I'll check with the iOS team to see if we can internalize those strings.

    @cortig, thanks for trying that to confirm the suspicion.

    Hi guys,

    The developers confirmed that it is not possible to do this. The main reason is that the Edit is just a button provided by iOS, so we can't just change the text on the fly.

    In order to see the whole app localized, you do have to change the iOS language instead.

    Fine with me then!
    At least, I know it's not a string that has been overseen.
    Thanks for letting us know!
