#3528 closed defect (fixed)

'Sugar' in the description given in My Settings > About My Computer should not be translated

Reported by: m_anish Owned by:
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Minor Keywords: dx3
Cc: Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Assigned


In the About My Computer section, the contents of 'info_text' in sugar/extensions/cpsection/ are gettexted.

"Sugar is the graphical user interface that you are....."

Viewing this in other languages, "Sugar" appears in translated form as well (eg: Azucar in spanish). I guess from that string, 'Sugar' should not be gettexed as that is a trademark (in a sense)

Thanks for filing this one. Agreed about not translating Sugar. Because late in this cycle, moving to the next one. Patches how to achieve best translate the rest of the description but not Sugar and keep it nice for the translators welcome :)

Adding a keyword so I can track, and maybe write a patch :-)

Please address this by adding a translator's comment to the string. I personally think it should be up to the individual languages whether they want to translate "Sugar" or not. Please file a bug against component=localization if there is a specific case you really want fixed.
