Could be merged into stable?

I think we should not change translations in stable branch.
For example:
  • Traditional Chinese (Taiwanese) #8778
  • Russian #9053

#6 Updated by Etienne Massip about 6 years ago

Actually, AFAIR, translations are usually merged into stable since they are considered as minor fixes:

I thought I could find a statement about translation merging in ReleaseManagement, but there is not.

#7 Updated by Toshi MARUYAMA about 6 years ago

But, Portuguese "field_start_date" and "field_due_date" are in since r518.

#8 Updated by Etienne Massip about 6 years ago

Actually, I'm not sure that the translation of "field_due_date" suggested in this patch is really accurate:

"Data Prevista" should be "Data fim" (means End Date)

...ok but "Due Date" is not exactly "End Date".

There is no defect report from 2007-05-08.

I can't get the link with merging or not to stable ?? :-D

#12 Updated by Toshi MARUYAMA about 6 years ago

I am Japanese and I can understand HANJI (KANJI), so Traditional Chinese #8778 "issue (from 項目 to 問題)" changing has big impact.

I think "field_start_date" and "field_due_date" changing has big impact, too.

#13 Updated by Etienne Massip about 6 years ago

Changing "field_start_date" translation from "Início" to "Data início" is like using "Start Date" instead of "Start", I don't think this is will have a big impact.

For "field_due_date", I feel like this change is not really needed (see note 8), would be nice if some Portuguese people could give their opinion?

#14 Updated by Celso Dantas about 6 years ago

I decided to submit this issue because I'm using Redmine at my work and 2 collegues questioned me about what "data prevista" meant. "Data previsa de que? De início ou de fim?"/"Due date of what? Start or end?". After that I opened the source code and updated the pt-BR file to use "Data ínício" and "Data fim".

But after seeing the discussion of you guys I questioned myseft and had a discussion with some collegues here and we think it should be:

field_due_date: "Fim previsto" / means "Due date" or "Planned end date" which makes more sense.

I would suggest to use "field_start_date: Início previsto" (means "Planned start date") instead just "Início"/"Start".

Any other portuguese to reiforce my opinion?
