#13026 closed defect (fixed)

French translation of localization tab has inappropriate joke

Reported by: crucuny@… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos

Release Notes:

Fixed inappropriate field label in French translation.

API Changes:


The label for the "date format" option, in the localization tab, for the French language, is deliberately worded to evoke a famous dirty joke ("choix dans la date", a famous spoonerism). A better and less crass wording would be something of the form "format des dates".

(Additionally, there is no translation for the "time format" label; this one is harder to translate: "format de l'heure" perhaps?)

French user here. "Format de date" and "Format horaire" sound better.

But I laughed at this translation :D

I'll pull latest translations from Transifex. It would be good to check if it's been fixed on Transifex.

Damn, I got caught. Guilty as charged ;-)

I changed to use Format de date on Transifex. I pulled the latest catalogs for 1.0-stable in r16698, r16699; for trunk in r16702, r16703. Please let me know if you spot any issues.

If someone would like to further update the catalogs on Transifex I could pull the translations again for any of the upcoming releases.
