[Bug 406626] Re: Deleted Items Folder inconsistently named in en_GB localisation


Hi everyone,

Thanks to everyone participating in the discussions and applying the
fixes, the original bug about inconsistent naming is now fixed. Good

For any remaining issues such as the need to add an article to the
actions related to the Rubbish Bin, I'd recommend using the British
translators mailing list, which is a more appropriate forum for such

Once agreement has been reached, you can modify the strings in Launchpad
if necessary, and they will be picked up in the next round of stable
release language pack updates, a few weeks after release.

Bug description:
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"!
