Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 292081
Msgid enhancement request

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):
I am translating this piece of software through the Translation Project.
So do you prefer anything like:
pritf(lock_mode == CM_UTC ? _("Using UTC time.\n") : _("Using local time.\n"));
Yes, that would be a lot better.
