[Bug 1592162] Re: Translation update + extras


I have installed ubuntu-docs 16.04.4 from xenial-proposed. Started yelp
with LANGUAGE=en_US, and can confirm that the new and changed English
strings (including "Ubuntu Software") show up as expected.

  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.
