Native speaker's expertise needed

Czesław Wolański
Hi,

while working on translation into Polish I found two strings:

- FRENCH:
  "Montrer les éléments d'écriture b~i directionnel"
  wording: "bi directionnel" - shouldn't it be "bidirectionnel"?

  Due screenshots are available at the following link:

  https://pasteboard.co/J1D5Qko.jpg


- ENGLISH:
  "Starts test mode. Click the dialog closer icon to end test mode."

  Is "dialog closer icon" admissible/adequate/common? Just like "can
opener"?
  I have never seen such wording in ICT or in programming.

  Due screenshots are available at the following link:

  https://pasteboard.co/J1D69IY.jpg


Neither French nor English is my mother tongue and I don't want to be "more
catholic than the pope" ("
*être plus catholique que le pape*"). So could a native speaker (French,
English - respectively) express his/her opinion.


Regards,

Czesław

*@Bidouille*: Je vous en prie.

I am now working on ReadMe file in Polish. While comparing English, French
and German versions I noticed
that in French version - file readme_fr -  part of  the original content is
missing. To be on the safe side I downloaded AOO 4.1.8 (mseidel build:
https://home.apache.org/~mseidel/AOO-builds/AOO-418-Test/Full%20Installation/
)

and checked: same part is missing. It's about:

"*  supprimera l'enregistrement de OpenOffice comme application par défaut
pour les formats Microsoft Office."

English version:

"* /msoreg=0 will suppress registration of OpenOffice as default
application for Microsoft Office formats."

In AOO  file ReadMe is displayed via  Help > About OpenOffice > License >
ReadMe tab


You will find due screenshots at the following link:

This is corrected in Pootle:

https://translate.apache.org/fr/aoo40/translate/#search=msoreg&sfields=source&unit=12778627&offset=0

This will be in 42X.

Hi,

My sincere apologies. Somehow I was convinced that ReadMe file is not in
Pootle (that is why Luke did not use the search).

Hope that someone will enlighten me on: "the dialog closer icon"

Regards,

Czesław Wolański

It is part of the translation, so it is in Pootle.

I am no native speaker, but since this is the original string a change
must be done in the source code.
