Description Christian Rose 2000-06-29 18:03:47 UTC
Noted during a text mode installation using Swedish:

The "welcome to red hat linux" screen has a title in the upper right hand
corner. I think this is the text string displayed:

#: ../iw/welcome_gui.py:11 ../iw/welcome_gui.py:38 ../text.py:911
#: ../text.py:946
msgid "Welcome"
msgstr "Vdlkommen"

The problem is, the translated string gets truncated to "Vdlkomm". The rest
doesn't fit on the screen.

Comment 1 Christian Rose 2000-06-29 22:23:58 UTC
It's not just that title, it's all of the translated titles that are longer than
their originals it seems.
For example, the

#: ../text.py:929 ../text.py:997 ../textw/userauth_text.py:172
msgid "User Account Setup"
msgstr "Konfiguration av anvdndarkonton"

message gets truncated to "Konfiguration av a", the length of the original. This
is really broken - there's no way I can translate that to anything in the same
lenght as the original or shorter in Swedish so that it fits. I noticed this
problem with other languages too.

Sorry for this. This bug (reported by me) is a duplicate of a previous one, so I
marked it as "DUPLICATE", but that was unfortunately "RESOLVED DUPLICATE". Since
this bug isn't resolved yet (at least I don't think so) the more correct would
be "CLOSED DUPLICATE", so I changed it to that, but forgot to tell why.

Hope this makes the change history for this bug somewhat clearer.
