Description Armijn Hemel 2007-02-13 14:04:16 UTC
Description of problem: Some units are used wrongly. The error is in the translation of the .po files. Fixes are trivial. Units should not be changed between langauges. Now every megabyte (MB) becomes a megabit (Mb) in the Dutch translation. This is wrong and confusing. Apart from the Dutch translation other translations might have this error too. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.16.2-2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. set language to Dutch 2. insert USB disk or so 3. see size displayed in Mb instead of MB on the desktop Actual results: Mb Expected results: MB Additional info: Cut and paste from nl.po: # KB / Kb #: ../libgnomevfs/gnome-vfs-utils.c:84 #, c-format msgid "%.1f KB" msgstr "%.1f Kb" #: ../libgnomevfs/gnome-vfs-utils.c:88 #, c-format msgid "%.1f MB" msgstr "%.1f Mb" #: ../libgnomevfs/gnome-vfs-utils.c:92 #, c-format msgid "%.1f GB" msgstr "%.1f Gb"

This bug is also in the Danish and "Limburgish" translation. It is just plain wrong, since these are international standards.
