Description of problem:
When selecting more than one file in nautilus the menu in Edit or the
context menu seems like this:
- Couper les fichiers
- Couper les fichiers
- Coller les fichiers

Instead of
- Couper les fichiers
- Copier les fichiers
- Coller les fichiers

When there's only one file selected the menu is good :
- Couper le fichier
- Copier le fichier
- Coller le fichier

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

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

The bug is display only...the action associated seems to be correct

Hm, well the original bug seems fixed in Null, but a new one has been introduced.  

Multiple selections now display (this looks correct):
- Couper les fichiers
- Couper les fichiers
- Coller les fichiers

But now a single file selection displays:
- Couper le fichier
- Copier le fichier
- Coller les fichiers (this one looks plural when it shouldn't be)

Actually, this looks true for English as well.  There appear to be some deeper
problems here.

When I select one file and click on the Edit menu, I see:
- Cut File
- Copy File
- Paste Files (grayed out because there's nothing in the clipboard)  I'm not
sure whether this should be plural or not since there's currently nothing in the

Anyway, I select a file and choose Edit -> Copy File.  Then I unselect the file
and go into another directory.  I now click Edit and the menu gives me the
option for "Paste Files".  It say "Paste File" since there's only one item in
the clipboard.  It should only say "Paste Files" if there's more than one item
in the clipboard.

Reassigning since this clearly isn't just a translation bug.

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-09-18 16:10:19 UTC
Personally, I think that the Edit menu should just read:
- Cut
- Copy
- Paste

This eliminates the problem of when to pluralize and when not to.  Also, saying
"Files" isn't always correct because it's possible to perform the actions on
directories as well, but the label doesn't change to say "Cut Directory".  It's
also possible to do a multiple selection on files and directories at the same
time, but it would be silly for the label to say "Cut Files and Directory"

It's much easier to just say Cut, Copy, and Paste.  Windows does it this way as

I've submitted a patch to nautilus-list.  We'll see if they take it.

Fixed in (at least) latest RAWHIDE.
