Description

The word "Date" is ambiguous. It requires advance knowledge of Redmine to understand whether the word means start date or due date. It will be clear if the term is changed to "Due Date".

field_effective_date is translated as follows. I think it is inconsistent, using same translation for both en and en-GB would be better.

  • en.yml: Due to
  • en-GB.yml: Due date

I don't understand this change, or the one from #14680. "Due to" does not make any sense to me, while "Due Date" is quite clear in it's intention. I think that the patch that Go MAEDA attached originally is what should be used as it sets both en and en-GB to "Due Date"

Thank you for your feedback.
r15413 has changed to "Due date".
I don't use "Due *D*ate" because Redmine uses upper case in start of phrase not word.

That makes sense, thanks for changing it.
