Description Stefan Weigel 2008-08-25 21:32:19 UTC
In OOo Calc german localization choose Format|Seite...|Seite. For center
alignment of the printout the user has to select the option "Tabellenausrichtung
Horizontal" and/or "Tabellenausrichtung Vertikal". (see screenshot attached)

The terms "Tabellenausrichtung Horizontal" and "Tabellenausrichtung Vertikal" do
*not at all* indicate, that this results in a centering of the printout.

Suggestion: Add "zentrieren" so the terms would be "Tabellenausrichtung
Horizontal zentrieren" and "Tabellenausrichtung Vertikal zentrieren".

(For comparison, you may want to have a look at the main competitor´s dialog in
the second screenshot attached.)

Confirm for "2.4.1  Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [680m17(Build9310)]"
and "Ooo-dev 3.0.0 Beta Multilingual version English UI WIN XP: [OOO300m3

It's not a [DE] problem, English version shows the same inaccurateness
Comment 4 Stefan Weigel 2008-08-26 09:08:53 UTC
I agree in expanding this issue to the english version as well.

Although, one valid translation of  english "alignment" is german "Axialität"
which implies centering in some way. So, in english "alignment" can be somehow
linked to centering, whereas in german "Ausrichtung" is absolutely neutral.

Anyway, we ought to find a better labeling in both (or all) languages.

SBA: Same in OOO300_m4. Changed component to "spreadsheet".
SBA->OC: Please proceed.

Hi Daniel, please have a look
Comment 7 daniel.rentz 2008-11-21 17:25:10 UTC
DR->FL: best fix is to add "ly centered" to the checkboxes:

FixedText: "Table alignment" (unchanged)
Checkbox "Hori~zontal" -> "Hori~zontally centered"
Checkbox "~Vertical" -> "~Vertically centered"

Adjust target.
Comment 9 thorsten.ziehm 2009-09-10 11:44:22 UTC
Branch-date (feature- and code-freeze) for OOo 3.2 is nearly done. Therefore I
change the target of this issue to OOo 3.x. If you think it is a stopper for OOo
3.2 please change the target back.
