Re: german translation
Ok, after a little break on the translation I hope to bring it to an
end and have collected some suggestions.
Component Properties Dialog
- Missing Tooltip for Pos X("); for Pos Y(") it exists
- "The vertical height of the currently selected field's text in the
What is a vertical height?
The height of the field regardless its position, the vertical
I've played around with the value but the field's text gets scaled
in all directions, not only vertically.
"Enter a filename if you do not want to use defaults files names\n
Can be used only when printing the current sheet"
-> "Enter a filename if you do not want to use default file names.\n
Can be used only when printing the current sheet."
you must choose a copper min thickness value bigger than 0.001
inch or 0.0254 mm)"
-> no opening brace only a closing one at the end
"Filled areas can use solid polygons or segments.\n
Depending on the complexity and the size of the zone,\n
sometime polygons are better and sometime segments are better"
-> Missing dot at the end of the entire sentence? The first one is
terminated with a dot.
"Export this zone setup to all others copper zones"
-> "Export this zone setup to all other copper zones"
"Smass cross" -> "Small cross"
"Save &as.." -> Most applications use three dots
Sometimes "Add NoConnect Flag", sometimes its "no connect"
"HV orientation for Wires and Bus"
-> "HV orientation for Wires and Busses"
CVpcb -> toolbar below shows text in french -> "connecteur"
"Pad Num :"
-> "Pad Num:"
Eeschema -> View -> Menu item: "Redraw view" => wrong info/tooltip
("Zoom auto") shown in the statusbar
-> expected message: "Redraw view"
Eeschema -> Place -> Menu item: "Place Junction"
-> expected menu item: "Junction", tooltip is ok and shows "Place
"Add a new library after the selected library, add load it"
-> "Add a new library after the selected library, and load it"
"Add a new library beforer the selected library, add load it"
-> "Add a new library before the selected library, and load it"
Eeschema -> lib_export.cpp 143 -> "0k" written with zero instead of
"Ok" with "O"
If "Open Project" selected from menubar the corresponding file dialog
that opens should als contain in its titel the "Open Project" text
instead of "Load Project File"
This goes for all menu items showing an Open/Save-FileDialog. This
"rule" and can be verified with all known applications.
In other words, an "open" menu item should guide the user to a "open"-
file dialog, which shows we are still on the right way for opening a
"Load Project files:" -> plural form for the word file has been used
it is only possible to load a single project file by selecting only
"Save project file"
-> "Save project file:"
"This file was created by a more recent version of PCBnew and may not
load correctly. Please consider updating!"
"This file was created by an older version of PCBnew. It will be
stored in the new file format when you save this file again."
" was created by a more recent version of EESchema and may not load
correctly. Please consider updating!"
" was created by an older version of EESchema. It will be stored in
the new file format when you save this file again."
-> Strings maybe to long for a single messagebox, should be split
I have used consistently everywhere "PCBnew" "CVpcb" "EESchema"
No translation for the titel and content of the About-Dialogs
Maybe it does not matter and is caused by wxAboutDialogInfo
>From KiCAD menubar "Open" "Save", from PCBnew menubar "Open Board"
There a much more inconsistencies I have recognized but have not
written all of them down.
These are possibly only cosmetic things but all together give the
entire application a more consistent user guidance.
Also the order of menu items. Sometimes its "Open" followed by "New"
sometimes its the other way around.
-> "General options", unnecessary dots for an info text shown in the
statusbar of a menu item; was also not used for all other menu items
"Hotkey configuration file:"
-> "Save Hotkey configuration file:", titel of a file dialog for
saving a file, should show the user what he is going to do
"Help file %s could not be found."
-> "Help file <%s> could not be found."
"Module %s not found"
-> "Module <%s> not found"
"Component [%s] not found!"
-> "Component <%s> not found!"
"Help file %s not found"
-> "Help file <%s> not found"
CVpcb -> File -> Open => No file dialog opens ???
Language selection -> no translation for "English" possible
Select how footprints are reconized:\n
-> Select how footprints are recognized:\n
COTATION -> seems to be a french word; maybe "dimensioning" was meant?
