Personally, I favor precise and hermetic language. People who need certain information will understand; people who don't, they don't care.

That's elitism and is wrong, really wrong.

Precision doesn't mean it has to be hermetic. People how know, don't need help. Don't you find contradictory to write _help_ in hermetic language? I'm not Calc user, but sometimes I do use it - and help witch doesn't help is worthless.

Bunch of (techno)babble is hard to translete (even impossible sometimes), and hermetic _help_ can't really help user who is not skilled in English. If you have something which is hard to translate and understand in original is something which no one can benefit from.

I know you didn't meant anything wrong, it's just a concern from part time Calc user.
