Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12334
Wrong calculation of length of translated strings
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
When choosing another language the english, the length of the string in the upper right corner will be assumed to be the length of the English string.
E.g. the screen "Welcome at Red Hat Linux!", translated in German as "Willkommen bei Red Hat Linux", will show in the upper right corner "Willkom" only (it should be "Willkommen").
Try this in BETA2 for fun!
Select A language other than English to install. Hit forward. Hit back. Choose
another non-English language. Repeat a few times.
Now start the install in English as normal
-> Note how all the text is spaced far too much. The buttons in the GUI are huge
and overlap each other sometimes. A lot of text is overlayed. All very ugly.
