The wrong translation for the user's home folder in nautilus
Description of problem:
The translation for the label 'Home' used for the user's home folder (e.g. /home/<user's home>) in nautilus file manager for the Bengali (India) locale is not the same as written in the translation files.
_Home has been translated as ব্যক্তিগত ফোল্ডার (_H) in the .PO files. However the translation used on the interface is হোম (_H).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to the Bengali-India locale (after selecting it from the Regional settings within the Desktop's System Settings)
2. Start nautilus
3. Check the translation for the label 'Home' on the title and left-bar (i.e. /home/<user's home> in this example ). Screenshot of the wrong translation has been attached.
The translated version reads - হোম (_H)
The translated version should read - ব্যক্তিগত ফোল্ডার (_H)
I see you're upstream translator, can you please provide a patch? I'd be happy to package it.
The correct translation is already part of the package. I ran a msgunfmt on the binary files (/usr/share/locale/bn_IN/LC_MESSAGES/nautilus.mo) to obtain the .PO file and it shows the correct translation in there. So I am not really sure how you'd want me to patch this up. Is there something else you'd like me to check up?
while testing fedora 16, same behaviour found with following packages:
Staring at the po files, as far as I can tell the string in question
is "Home" and there is no translation for "Home" in bn_IN.po
so it is falling back to bn.po.
(I didn't look at the upstream .po files/stats...)

We ran a msgunfmt on the .mo files that are part of both those versions to get the .PO files from the binary. The string that we found contains an accesskey and is "_Home" and is translated as ব্যক্তিগত ফোল্ডার (_H) in all places for bn_IN.
Is there some other file you would like us to test on?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
That looks good to me on f18 (dunno even if there are any rendering problem there) can anyone please confirm it too?

Could you please confirm Comment 8 ?
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
