Hi, I've stumbled at some 1.4.0 translations:

Code: Select all

        <location filename="DlgConvertProcess.h" line="2513"/>
        <source>Aspect Pad</source>
I have no idea what it does, even after playing with this option in beta 1.

Code: Select all

        <location filename="DlgConvert.ui" line="1235"/>
        <location filename="project/GeneratedFiles/ui_DlgConvert.h" line="1588"/>
        <source>TextLabel</source>
Don't really get why this is even displayed. When converting starts it is replaced by number of files, so why display and translate it at all?

Code: Select all

        <location filename="BrowserMenu.h" line="658"/>
        <source>Switch panel...</source>
Cannot find this in app (supposed to be some browser mode menu). Is this:
a) toggle to switch some panels, or
b) panel with some switches

Kind thanks for any support :)

Yes, it was a request, perhaps better with image

Not sure that 'Switch panel' is a good term, it's to go between panels

Good questions, Skiff - above answers will help other translators (including me).

I'm still struggling to translate "Aspect Pad". In which topic is this feature discussed?
