Many strings are badly formed but many of those were written in OpenOffice

Several of them are even incorrect according with ODF formula like the ones
You stated before.

This could lead to corporate entities not adopting Libreoffice as main
office app.

Of course translators can always change strings not respecting the original
ones but many of entities tend to use English language due to
localization errors. I do this in Android system. In this case all I can
say is that sometimes translations are better than original strings.

For example in a lot of formulas you will find field "Basis" with
description "The basis".

Someone who tries to use that formula for first time will have a hard time
finding out what does that field do.
I'm re-translating all formulas since some of them were totally off so I
found out what that fielddoes and increased number of words in translation.
Good english description should look something like this: "Basis for
determining number of days in a year".

There are a lot of other strings which are very vague and need better
If someone will act on it, I can report strings I find and suggest better
description. But since noone from LO reacted on last 2 reports I'm guessing
this isn't interesting.
