Hi again, Frank,
Yep, there are three strings marked as "fuzzy". This is (for example)
because, when translating, I can not be sure wether "Display" refers
to a "display device", or to the verb "To display". In the first case,
the translation would be (and that's how it is in fact translated)
"Pantalla" (or, perhaps, "visor", but in this case I think it's better
"pantalla"). If it refers to the verb, then the translation would be
So, what I often do is: translate it (marking as fuzzy when needed),
compile, run, and look for those fuzzy strings. Once I am sure,
"unfuzzy" the strings. But, as I mentioned in a former mail, this time
I could not do it "the right way". So, I checked other languages that
I, more or less, can read, and see what they have done. I don't
remember all the languages I checked, but most of them seemed to
translate it with the meaning of "display device". But not every
language, so I let it as fuzzy.
Anyway, it's just a mark for the translator. If i remember right, the
translated program will show fuzzy strings as well as "unfuzzy" ones.
I am right? Damm, now I am in a doubt, hehe . If anyone could correct
me (if fuzzy strings are not being displayed), I'll mark them as "not
fuzzy", and re-send the file.
Thanks for your comments, and your work. Regards,
