Companion numbers/views bug | Android, German/Deutsch

German Companion App version 3.32.1 (1323) has still unreadable numbers in the activity diagrams.
Why is Zwift not able to correct it?

Sam here, latest version, german localization, Pixel 6, Android 12. Nothing changed in display / scaling settings.
Very annoying…

Yes, please fix the problem. Thanks

Can you provide us with some News regarding this Bug? I now have these problems since December. In the meantime there hase been an Companion Update that did not fix the issue. I know development takes time but this worked before december, so I guess this can’t be to hard to fix. It is really annoying to me on all my devices.

Hi, sorry for not getting back to you. It’s with our development team but I’m afraid I don’t have any timescales for the fix.

Since this bug seems specific to the German language version of Companion in Android and isn’t looking to be a short-term fix, might it be a good idea to modify this thread’s title to help new people coming up against this issue to find this discussion rather than start new threads? (I’ve seen more than a couple over the last few weeks before being redirected here.)

If it is in German only - what is in German language so special???

@James_Zwift
Could you please check if the devs are aware? It is really annoying…

Well, long words certainly aren’t exactly rare in German for sure, but basically this one is just a random case of internationalization incompetence: someone has translated an on-screen text without considering its context, resulting in a translation that takes more space than there is available. Should be seen as an embarrassment for all involved.

You are absolutely right Anna. There are probably no german-speaking developers or all interns have left Zwift. But seriously, if Zwift can’t offer a working app in three months, then they should better eliminate the German version and only offer the English one. The real reviews on google are scathing. Why advertise Zwift on German television if nobody cares about customer satisfaction? Shall we create tickets now?

Same here, Android 10, Huawei P20pro. Text and Scaling set to very small. But it doesn’t matter, the Scaling is faulty in every setting.

Same on my wife’s Poco X3 Pro, Android 11.

The actual translations probably come from a service provider’s subcontractor even under the best of circumstances, but whoever manages the internationalization as a whole should at least have the skill and understanding to do some kind of elementary quality assurance. (Oh, wait…) You don’t even have to understand the language to see that the translation simply does not fit.

And yes, the best solution here is probably to use the ⌀ sign.

Seriously - the problem is from last year and still not solved? So before not seeing anything just make it possible to switch back to English as default language. It worked until 11-2021. Can’t be so difficult and this is annoying.

…that’s exactly how it is, it really can’t be that hard to fix this problem. It worked wonderfully in 2021!

@shooj Any update on this one? Is it being looked at?

It worked very well before the last App updates. Nothing changed on the client side, which means this must be in app problem which needs to be addressed.

I’m well aware that there are other, more severe issues to look at. I just wanted to highlight this so that it’s not overlooked.

New version 3.33.0 and still the same crap is displayed.

Version 3.33.1 - No improvement. The preview of events is also not readable.


Should look like this:

Please fix it … please …
