German: Status bar in English
Not “that” important and maybe a well know topic, but why is the status-bar in German version not translated and displayed in English? (Length, lines, col, …)
A good question that an English user (me) has never pondered, for obvious reasons! :-)
Here might be a reason:
There’s limited space there – perhaps things like
Coldon’t translate into equivalencies that are as “horizontally short” in other languages? Personally, I think that even in English these are “too long”.
Cwould definitely suffice.
Perhaps make a feature request for your translation desire?
Here’s our FAQ entry for how to do that: https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/topic/15741/faq-desk-feature-request-or-bug-report
Another good question, while pondering the (English) status bar is, why isn’t:
length : 22,067 lines : 190
Length : 22,067 Lines : 190
Everything else is nicely capitalized…
,in the length data; some locales use
.for this separator; are people going to want this “translated” as well?
Lots of things to think about for the lowly status bar. :-(
Here’s another status-bar note: The
Selarea looks like it could be getting some enhancement soon. See https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues/8524
Maybe get your opinion in there on how
Selshould be translated into German. :-)
