When a translation to a specific language is empty, it is exported nevertheless in the translation pack, which means that it appears in Chamilo 1.8 as empty strings (or rather... nothing appears).
In the normal process, we do not export these variables, which allow a fallback to the English version if there is no available translation.

I'm stucked with problem related to the Bug #743. It will help a lot if there is possibility to download langpack with empty/untranslated strings.
I'm aware of the problem described above, but can i suggest to add secondary download link with full list of langvars for translators only ?
