French natural language parser issues

When setting a due date using natural language in French, it's a bit of a pain and doesn't look to work as expected.

I have to use
auj à 11:00

and this won't work, even if it's similar to an example given
auj à 11h

See these 2 screenshots for more details
Error: http://bit.ly/12DJ8Bu
Suggested syntax: http://bit.ly/12DJacq

I wouldn't mind using the English version of the app but since my iOS devices are French, TD defaults to French with no option to change language.

Hello Max,

Thank you for your report. This seems to be an issue with the error message as it shouldn't suggest "11h" to you. The correct syntax that works (as I've just checked is:

auj à 11:00
auj à 11
auj @ 11:00
auj @ 11

All the dates above should work fine, please let me know if you experience any issues with them too.


Best regards,
David

Great, works better this way.

If possible, it would be nice to be able to use "a" since it's faster to type than "à" or "@". Like "auj a 11".

Thanks!

Max,

We'll allow "a" in next updates of our app :)


Best regards,
David

I have error message when I add time to date or need to change date.
System converts August to Srpna (Czech) and this is the problem.
If I rewrite Srpna to August or "8", everything is fine.

Kakaxa,

We're sorry for the inconvenience, we'll address this issue in future updates by preventing it from using local dates for languages which we don't fully support.


Best regards,
David
