Hi Mihkel,

2011/11/19 Mihkel Tõnnov <>:
Hi *,
The 3.5 branch introduced new strings to format and delete header/footer
("Format $1..." and "Delete $1..." -- _XDs and wAFn, respectively), but
these are coded in a way that the end result looks weird/wrong for
languages which don't use Title Case as much as English ($1 is pulled
separate strings where they start with a capital letter).

Since the string freeze is not yet in effect, it would be nice if these
strings were split into four distinct strings: "Format Header...",
Footer...", "Delete Header...", "Delete Footer...".

In general you are right, but in this particular case you can
translate STR_HEADER and STR_FOOTER from sw/source/ui/docvw/docvw.src
with lower case, if it is required for your language, because they are
only used to construct this popup menu.

OK, didn't know that -- thanks! I can live with that for Estonian, although
there probably are languages where "Header" (or "Footer") is inflected
differently with "Format" and "Delete", or where it would be natural to use
different word order for them. So I really think constructing phrases this
way should be avoided if possible.
