translationCore showing error message "Unknown Error fetching repository"

Recently we have encountered a few instances of translationCore not being able to download a project.


As soon as the user tries to download a new project, translationCore shows the message “Unknown error fetching repository”.


Most of the time, this can be remedied by installing the latest version of Git.

  • Go to Git - Downloads
  • Click on the link for your operating system
  • Confirm the download
  • Install the file you just downloaded

For most people, this should be enough to fix the problem.
