antix-all-desktop-entries_en.txt

#1 Post by Eadwine Rose » Wed Nov 15, 2017 2:59 am

Question about this file, since I don't know what to do.


Name=1-to-1 Assistance

Does one translate that? Naam=1-op-1 Assistentie?

Or do you not translate things that look like that?

I am used to there being spaces, like so: Name = 1-to-1 Assistance
and then you translate.. but this almost looks code-like, so this confuses me.

It is the name of the app, so it doesn't really need translating, unless you know your language (Dutch, in your case) does translate the names of apps.

Also do not translate the words Name nor Comment

Thanks

I'm sure I already translated 1-to-1 assistance before but I can't put my hand on it. So frustrating

And if I remember well I tried to give a meaning in french so that people know what this app is about.

Some of the names will also have been translated elsewhere for example in the control centre.

You are right. This one at transifex has more entries and it centralised in one place.

OK.. I will leave the Name and Comment words alone, and see about the rest.

Thanks!

Just a note..line 88 has a spelling error in the original English text:

Comment=Use remote resources via an ssh encypted connection


It's missing the r
