Introduced with #34494 for translation :button_save_object the object_name uses label_query with downcase.

In German (and most likely other languages, too) the translation for label_query has to stay with an upper letter. abfrage speichern is currently generated with downcase, but it should be "Abfrage speichern"

The attached patch removes downcase from :button_save_object.

#1 Updated by Alexander Meindl 5 months ago

Found another problem with the same change for deleting issues. #31278 uses downcase for :label_issue. This cannot be used for German. In German it has to be Ticket not ticket.

Actually this problem exists with:

  • :button_save_object
  • :button_edit_object
  • :button_delete_object

For each of these labels object_name uses downcase, which makes Redmine looks very strange in German (I'd not say unusable - but very unprofessional).

If we want to stick with :button_*_object, we need a lower case and an upper case label for all objects. E.g. label_issue and label_Issue. label_query and label_Query. But which language need the lower label and which the upper label? Because of this (unsolvable?) question, it would be better to revert :button_*_object introduction. Maybe switch to buttons with isolated label, as label_save_issue and label_save_query.

Please ignore my patch, it would only remove downcase for label_query, which does not solve all problems related to :button_*_object.
