Hi :)
L10n lists are currently having a massive argument/discussion (discussion
is more accurate tbh) right now about the disruptive effect of minor

The problem is minor changes, like capital letters in menu entries, that
concerns only en_US version but because this version is the source for
all the localization, this is also visible in localized versions where
it could be considered as wasted time for localizers.

I'm not sure but i suspect that getting such a UI change within the next
couple of days might play out ok and catch the translators before they have
put too much time into too many strings and then finding they need to
repeat the work.

If it's not likely to be just a couple of days then it'd probably be better
for them if this sort of change didn't happen for a few months - or
longer.  There might be a chance of them automating something like this but
it'd take ages to set something up and they haven't agreed on getting the
automation bit sorted.

Shortcuts can't be automated as they are localized (Ctrl and Shift). And
the problem with automation is that we need somebody to write the
scripts ;) The same for accelerators, where we need to adapt them to
translated words.
Anyway we will have a discussion about it with developers and UX team,
once we are out of the 4.4.0 rushes.
