Description of problem:

It seems the string "-" should be untranslatable:

#: ../src/vmm-add-hardware.glade.h:1 ../src/vmm-create.glade.h:3
msgid "-"

Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2008-03-12 21:11:38 UTC
This is fixed upstream:


Comment 2 Piotr Drąg 2008-03-14 19:59:14 UTC
I'm happy to see these strings removed from po files, but unfortunately you made
untranslatable some strings that have to be translated, like:

Virtual Machine Manager
80 MB of 1 GB
30 MB of 128 MB
1.59 GB of 2.2 GB

Some languages may need more strings to translate ("60%", "2000 MB"?), but I'm
not sure with this.

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2008-03-14 20:28:14 UTC
Hi, I'm glad you reviewed this change.

The 'Virtual Machine Manager' string is indeed an error, I will fix that.

The others aren't though. They are actually strings the user never sees: they
are hardcoded into the graphics of the application as a kind of default value.
It helps us to see what is supposed to be in a graphical label when we are
editing the graphics. Labels with no text are not easily discernable or
selectable. As such those strings do not need to be translated, because when the
application is initialized the default values are (ideally) either overwritten
or removed outright.
