[Bug 406626] Re: Deleted Items Folder inconsistently named in en_GB localisation
The problem is that, "Sent to Rubbish Bin" and "Empty Rubbish Bin" sound
disjointed and robotic. It's not fair to compare it to "trash" because
Trash is what what goes in the bin (e.g. Empty Rubbish sounds OK).
Empty Rubbish Bin is understandable, it's just ugly.

The deleted items folder is inconsistently named and is referred to as both Wastebasket and Deleted items, Ubuntu offers to 'Empty Deleted Items' but the window is headed Wastebasket. The URL to deleted items is also trash:/// in nautilus but this is possibly a seperate issue. An effect of this can be seen in #115661 also.
This could confuse new users and it should be a simple enough fix simply changing strings, so I believe it is a papercut.
from the Doc Team: the recommended term is now "Rubbish Bin"!
