[Bug 1484484] Re: Wrong German translation of "holiday"
@Phillip Sz (phillip-sz) I think adding explanations to translations is
a feature that is missing in Launchpad's translation platform.

Wrong German translation of "holiday"
Status in Holidays Scope:

Status in Ubuntu Translations:
The today scope can be configured to display the next holidays. The
label has a wrong German translation.
The word "holidays" can have two meanings in English:
1. "official day without work" (German translation: "Feiertag" resp. "Feiertage" when referring to a single or few days; "Ferien" when referring to a longer period.)
2. "vacation" (German translation: "Urlaub", i.e. a holiday trip.)
Currently, the German translation reads "Urlaub", which is meaning no. 2 and obviously wrong in this context.
The correct translation in this context would be no. 1, but it may be difficult to decide if "Feiertag(e)" or "Ferien" should be used.
