Japanese Localization typo on Recursion

Description of the issue:

There's a typo in the text we see during the Recursion process. "process" is incorrectly translated... so that we Agents are doing "professional wrestling" during Recursion process. It breaks our precious experience. To fix, just replace one letter!

Device, OS, app version:

Android 11 (probably OS agnostic) / 2.59


Please find two screenshots attached.

Old English version as of Nov. 2018.

Newer Japanese version as of May 2020.

  • Thanks for the heads up. Can you share a copy of what the exact text should say in Japanese instead?

  • Thank you for your attention, Brian.

    As SielDragon-san suggested, it's:


    I didn't write in the original post because I'd like to know how Niantic staffs cooperate to solve subtle/non-English problems like this.

    It's subtle, hence may be low-priority, but very easy to fix.

    It's clear for Japanese translators how to fix and I suggest you just pass this post to them. They fix it instantly while laughing at a funny typo.

    Ack, I see what the issue is, and we'll follow up with our translators, thank you.

  • Thank you for your acknowledgment.

    I’m looking forward to the next recursion. Also hope the fix will be in time.

    I noticed this bug has been fixed around February (so 2.65.1?) from other Agents' screen shot.

    I confirmed by myself at last.

    I think we could close this report.

    Thank you.
