XnView MP 0.99.1:

Finished... -->
Finished.

Finished: %1 file(s) found... -->
Finished: %1 file(s) found.

<< Back -->
< Back (like in XnResize)

Change DPI -->
Set DPI (like in XnView Classic, EDIT: In XnView Classic menu says "Set DPI..." while dialog title says "Change DPI...")

Modify timestamp, please wait... -->
Modifying timestamp, please wait...

Aborted... -->
Aborted.
or
Stopped. (see below)

Abort -->
Stop (multiple occurences. XnView Classic uses "Stop". Side aspect: Currently, when translating "Cancel" and "Abort" to other languages, this might result in the same translation which is wrong. The term "Stop" might help to avoid this.)

DlgAcquireInto > "Batch scanning" -->

XnView 0.99.7:

Suggestion:
Tools >> Tag face... -->
Tools >> Face tag...

Why do I suggest this change? It's to simplify both translation and the user interface. Selecting "Tag face.." for adding "Face tags" might be a nice wordplay in English but this wordplay doesn't work well in other languages. Reason is that in one case "tag" is used as verb and in the second case "tag" is a part of the composed noun. Therefore I suggest use just "Face tag..." both for menu and dialogs which is the common term in the web for this feature. "Face region" would be also an alternative which is a bit less common, atm.

Thank you, Pierre. "Face tag(s)..." or "Edit face tag(s)..." might be also good alternatives because it can be one or multiple face tags.

XnView MP 1.00:

___
MenuBrowser > Views as Thumbnails -->
View as Thumbnails

MenuBrowser > Views as Thumbnails + Filename -->
View as Thumbnails + Filenames

Note: There are many more labels which start with "Views as". They all need to be corrected.

Those labels are long and thus look not so clean:
View as Thumbnails
View as Thumbnails + Filenames
View as Thumbnails + Labels
Views as Thumbnails+Labels
Views as Thumbnails+Details
Views as Icons
Views as List
Views as Details
I'm not sure where these labels are used in XnView MP 1.00. I'd strongly suggest to use a submenu have labels "Thumbnails", "Thumbnails + Filename", and so on in the submenu (without "View as"). This way existing labels can be reused instead of introducing new labels.

These labels are only used as tooltips on toolbar's button

O.k., I see. So it's o.k. if these labels are verbose and repetitive. ;)

1.00 beta2:

Currently, within XnView the terms "category" and "keywords" are used. If understand right, you can assign one or several categories in XnView to an image. In the category filter you can see all those images that are assigned to a specific category. XnView will store this assignment to categories in its database. Alternatively, you can store the assignment to categories inside the images as (hierarchical) keywords.

To me, it looks as if the two terms "category" and "keywords" are not used properly in XnView's settings (Settings, category "Meta data").

Suggestions:

Automatically apply parent keywords (Ctrl+click for single keyword) -->
Automatically apply parent category (Ctrl+click for single category)

Title: Keywords -->
Categories and keywords

Read hierarchical keywords -->
Read hierarchical keywords from images as categories

Write hierarchical keywords -->
Write categories into images as hierachical keywords
