Should key words be translated?

Asked by Jonatan Zeidler on 2014-10-15

In the favorite settings there are options that can be set in a text field like e.g. "Downloaded:Copy". Can those key words be translated? Actually in the German translation the user is told to set them in German e.b. "Heruntergeladen:Kopieren". Is that correct?

No, these should not be translated. The code looks specifically for the words "Downloaded", "Fetched", "Others", "Copy", "Move", "Both".

Please fix the German translation at https://translations.launchpad.net/variety. Thanks for pointing this out.

Can you help with this problem?
