The root cause of blog translation errors is either incomplete translations, or mistakes in the reStructuredText formatting in the translation. In the cases above, the translators have translated the rST tag corresponding to the link, but haven't translated the paragraph that uses it; the Docutils backend can't connect the link to the paragraph (which is done by exact text match) and panics.

The immediate solution is to manually fix these errors as they appear. The long-term solution is to educate the translators about blog translations, to help them prevent these errors from occurring.

This ticket will remain open until the long-term solution is successfully implemented. In the meantime, please continue to post blog errors in this ticket. I think I will even adjust the blog error message to reference this ticket, so viewers know where to post errors.

Don't know if this error has re-appeared anywhere else. From what I am able to gather, things like links, etc. should be kept out of the {% trans -%}/{%- endtrans %} tags so that they don't get translated by the translation team?

Perhaps a set of guidelines when blog posts are drafted and added to the website system to ensure that the {{ link }} style of links aren't included, or a way of tagging such links so that translators know not to translate them.
