Re: Call for 'Practice Your English' translations


Hi Costales,

I noticed some problems in Practice Your English.

- The help is not translatable
- The File -> "Open Sentences File..." string is not translatable
- I'm not sure "Practice Your English" should be translatable... (and it
might be better spelled as "Practice your English").
- There is also a "Practice Your " string. It seems useless. And AFAIK
it is just used in the titlebar where you append an not-translatable
"English" anyway (which leads to a mixed language titlebar, which is
quite ugly).
- The "Download Community Sentences..." option bring the user to an
English only web site
- There is a "3 _Lives" string and "3 Lives", "2 Lives" and "1 Live".
AFAIK we only need a plural form[1] (and the accelerator should be here
in each case)

Otherwise, I noticed that the "Object" field is empty with some sentences.
In this case, an empty pink rectangle is still displayed. I think you
should remove the "Object" row or at least the empty rectangle.

PYE is a good idea and it seems to work quite well for its young age,
thank you for your work!
