Description Lauri Nurmi 2007-09-15 11:10:18 EDT
Description of problem:

The following message is difficult to translate into foreign languages, I
request it to be changed:

printf(_("Using %s time\n"),
        clock_mode == CM_UTC ? "UTC" : _("local"));

Please use separate sentences in situations like this, where there are only few
possible alternatives that are known at compile time. Assembling sentences piece
by piece often makes them hard to translate.  And in any case, "UTC" should be
translatable as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Addiotional info:
I am translating this piece of software through the Translation Project.
Comment 1 Karel Zak 2007-10-02 19:13:05 EDT
So do you prefer anything like:

pritf(lock_mode == CM_UTC ? _("Using UTC time.\n") : _("Using local time.\n"));

Comment 2 Lauri Nurmi 2007-10-02 21:12:27 EDT
Yes, that would be a lot better.
