Translation No Longer Working on Gitlab-CE 11.6.3



Thank you in advance for reading.

My organization utilizes English translations (gitlab.pot and en/gitlab.po) to make Gitlab’s verbiage match those of our organization’s - this is primarily around projects as in our organization a “project” would encompass many data feeds. With the last two updates I noticed that despite having values in gitlab.pot such as the entry below, the original text was still appearing after re-configuring and restarting gitlab-ce.

msgid "Your projects"
msgstr "Your data feed"   

The only other change that has been made was chown 775 on the /locale directory which is otherwise owned by root:root

Any ideas on what could be causing translations to break / is it a permission issue?

EDIT: On another instance without any permission changes to the locale directory I am seeing the same behavior - did translations break with the latest versions?
