1.82 English translation (Beta 1)

Postby helmut » Tue Dec 13, 2005 6:55 pm

Normally there should be one topic per problem/issue, but I think for translations handling still works o.k. even when reporting many issues in one topic.

When using the 1.82 Beta1, I've found various wordings which I find suspicous, below please find the list. If you also have issues regarding the translation in XnView 1.82, then post here. Feedback and comments from English native speakers is most welcome, please note that we try to use British English (BE) in XnView.

English Translation in XnView 1.82 Beta1

- <Location> (<Menu path>)
"<Wording in 1.82 Beta1>" -> "<Suggested new wording>
"

- "Change timestamp" dialog (Tools > Change timestamp)
"Set to date and time the file created" -> "Set to creation date and time of file"

- "Change timestamp" dialog (Tools > Change timestamp)
"Set to the following time and date" -> "Set to specific date and time"

- "Edit IPTC data" dialog (Edit > Metadata > Edit IPTC data)
"Merge with existing values (keywords & supplemental categories)" -> "Merge new entries (keywords & categories) with existing entries"

- "Edit IPTC data" dialog (Edit > Metadata > Edit IPTC data)
"Leave existing field if new entry is empty" -> "Use old value if new entry is empty"

- "Edit IPTC data" dialog (Edit > Metadata > Edit IPTC data)
"Only replace existing fields that are empty" -> "Only replace if old entry is empty"

- Message box if Online help is not available (Info > Help)
".. and install it in the Help folder of XnView" ->
"... and unpack it in the Help folder of XnView" (Installation sounds as if you have to run a setup)

- Tooltip in toolbar "Remove red eye"
"Remove red eye" -> "Red eye correction" or "Correct red eye"

- Menu item "Image > Count colour used"
"Count colour used" -> "Count colours used"

- "Set Comment" dialog (Edit > Metadata > Set comment...)
"Write all selected" -> "Write all"

- Thumbnail label (Tools > Options > Browser > Thumbnail > Label)
"File type" -> "Image type" (File type refers to Windows extension, this is not the case, here)

- Menu item "Edit > Metadata > Clean.."
"Clean..." -> "Remove..." (similar to View mode where it says "Remove all")

- Menu item "Create > Multi-Page"
"Multi-page" > "Multi-page image"

The current wording is improper. Your suggested wording is acceptable.
- Message box if Online help is not available (Info > Help)
".. and install it in the Help folder of XnView" ->
"... and unpack it in the Help folder of XnView" (Installation sounds as if you have to run a setup)

Agreed.
- Menu item "Image > Count colour used"
"Count colour used" -> "Count colours used"

Absolutely.
- Thumbnail label (Tools > Options > Browser > Thumbnail > Label)
"File type" -> "Image type" (File type refers to Windows extension, this is not the case, here)

Agreed. It displays image types.
- Menu item "Edit > Metadata > Clean.."
"Clean..." -> "Remove..." (similar to View mode where it says "Remove all")

This is a little more complicated because there is an "optimize (huffman table)" in submenu. So, a perfectly accurate term seems impossible. I prefer "Remove..." because "Clean.." implies that the data does not belong there.
- Menu item "Create > Multi-Page"
"Multi-page" > "Multi-page image"

Agreed. A multi-page what? Multi-page image.
