Post Update Issue with email templates

I recently migrated/updated our Alfresco Share 3.4.d installation to a new server running Alfresco Share 4.2.e.

Since then, many of our email templates are "missing" … we first noticed when notifications that used to be in french are now sent in english. I've spent some time searching the forums for a similar problem, to no avail.

One of the "symptons" that I see is that even though I can see the


file on our server's file system, when I go have a look at our Repository -> Data Dictionnary -> Email Templates -> Workflow Notifications I do not see that wf-email_fr.html.ftl in there.

I have added it manually to the Repository with the "Upload" fonctionality and even though it is now in the repository, it is still the english template which is used. I have validated that the content of the *_fr.html.ftl files are ok (in french). I've also validated that the file really does contain french transalations.

I'm puzzled by all of this, looking at other email templates in the repository I see names such as "invite-email_fr.html.ftl" while on the file system I find files such as /opt/alfresco-4.2.e/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/templates/invite-email-templates/invite-email.html_fr.ftl . This makes me suspect that our repository still expects to find "version 3.4.d" email templates, that it is desynchronised with the file system on the new version.

Is this a known issue ? More importantly, is there a known solution ?
