[Bug 1592162] Re: Translation update + extras


Hello Gunnar, or anyone else affected,

Accepted ubuntu-docs into xenial-proposed. The package will build now

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

  Translation update + extras

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ubuntu-docs source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:

  This upload combines a regular translation update of the 16.04 desktop
  guide with changes of 30+ translatable strings.

  Normally we don't do SRUs of translatable strings in ubuntu-docs, but
  there was a late name change of the new software management
  application from just "Software" to "Ubuntu Software", which was not
  reflected in the desktop guide at release time. The relative
  importance of Ubuntu Software, and its mentioning in the desktop guide
  in several places, justifies this exception.

  We have taken this 'opportunity' to SRU a few other bug fixes; please
  see the changelog.

  The translators have been notified:


  and reminded:


  [Test Case]

  As an example, this page:


  refers to "Software" only. With the update it's changed to "Ubuntu

  [Regression Potential]

  For some languages, some strings, which were translated at release
  time, may be untranslated after this update. That's unfortunate, but
  these changes of original strings carry greater weight. It's also
  possible to improve this through translation updates later on.

  Otherwise the regression risk is low. This is only documentation,
  which does not affect other parts of the system.
