Are we using the term "dialog" or "dialog box"? The OOo books vary in usage:
Getting Started and Calc (and maybe Draw; I didn't check) use "dialog" while
the Writer Guide uses "dialog box".
The LibreOffice options use the term "dialog" for some of the options. I
haven't checked the help, but I think it also uses "dialog".
If we settle on "dialog", I will amend the Writer Guide chapters as I go
through them doing other things.
FWIW, I personally prefer "dialog" but the important thing is to be
consistent, when we can. I suspect other variations in terminology in both
the program and the user guides, left over from OOo.
If you want to stay consistent with the help files content, then you
should use [dialog] because this is what is used all over there.
May be we should find a way for you to use our translation memory or
glossaries so you get the same words for the UI, the Help and your
documentation? This is what we try to achieve with our translation
tools. Or just let you research for the terms on Pootle would be enough,
I don't know?
