#13026 assigned defect

French translation of localization tab has inappropriate joke

Reported by: crucuny@… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0.17
Component: i18n Version:
Severity: normal Keywords: l10n french
Cc: Christian Boos
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.
