 ralphie 2005-03-09 08:59:34 UTC Datei->Neu->Etiketten->Zusätze ============================== http://www.pangea.at/~ralph/inhaltesynchronisieren.png This issue is only about the German wording, maybe this is the wrong scope, I'll check if the same problem exists in the English version and maybe file an additional issue. This problem came up on dev@de, see e.g. http://de.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgNo=16843 if you want more context. Thanks to David Schröder for suggesting this. In the Label creation dialog there is a checkbox item labelled "Inhalte synchronisieren" (see screenshot above). I do think this is a very unfortunate wording, because: a) It falsely suggests that this is for "synchronizing" adresses to the database and/or a PDA. This misconception is even more a problem, because adress labels are most likely the most common application of this dialog. b) "Synchronisieren" is a needlessly "difficult" word by itself. It is not (IMHO) what users would use to describe this action. I would suggest using a different wording, like e.g.: "Änderungen auf alle Etiketten übertragen" "Gleichen Text auf alle Etiketten übertragen" "Gleicher Text auf allen Etiketten" "Alle Etiketten haben den gleichen Inhalt" Additionally, the labelling of the actual "button" (a floating one-button palette) that comes up after this dialog might have to be changed for consistency's sake too. Actually this *is* inconsistent right now, because the text in the dialog seems to have changed from 1.1 to 2.0, but the button has not (have not checked this). Thanks! stefan.baltzer 2005-03-16 15:50:30 UTC SBA: Confirmed. Reassigned to LIZ. e.matthis 2005-03-30 13:51:58 UTC Thank you for the excellent description and the screen shot. Agreed: "synchronisieren" is not the best choice here and since there is no lack of space we should replace it with a more usable text. (In all affected languages) e.matthis 2005-07-25 18:10:28 UTC This is not only a problem in German, but in English as well. Plus, the same strings are used for the business cards as for labels. Therefore the strings should be applicable to both, not specific for labels (--> the button text below is incorrect anyway for business cards) liz->os: please do two things 1) separate the resource strings so that there are separate ones for labels vs business cards. 2) use the following new strings in German and English.
