    initial v1  
    11So let me summarize: The dashboard deliberately lies to the user about the extent of automatic updates, Wordpress can and will by default overwrite and reset the user's translations at any time, and there is no notification whatsoever, not even an increased version number, so the site owner will never know until he gets feedback from customers.

    3 The [http://codex.wordpress.org/Configuring_Automatic_Background_Updates documentation] mentions that notifications are ON by default, when they are in fact not for translations, which are far more likely to be changed than code by a non-technically minded admin.
     3The [http://codex.wordpress.org/Configuring_Automatic_Background_Updates documentation] mentions that notifications are ON by default, when they are in fact not for translations, which are far more likely to be changed than code by a non-technically minded admin. The only way to re-activate notifications for translation updates is by modifying core source code, or by using a [https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/hooks/automatic_updates_send_debug_email/ developer debug feature].

    55And this can only be prevented by putting the whole setup into version control (like I had), by frequently checking source files, or by turning off these updates by adding filters to source code.
