Re: [libreoffice-l10n] Function IRR description

```Hi :)
Thanks :)  I think

Computes the internal rate of return for a series of cash flows

is a minor improvement on the 2nd one.  Neither make any sense to me but some background reading
about the topic made it clear i would never understand enough to get a short simple sentence.  The
2nd one suggests that the function can handle a number of inputs and then generate a single output
value.  The first suggests that you have got to put in several different parameters  in order to
get a single output value.

Regards from
Tom :)

```Hi :)
Sorry i am not completely clear about 2 crucial things
1.  What is the string as is?

```
```
Returns the actuarial rate of interest of an investment excluding costs or
profits

```
```2.  What is the suggested alternative?

```
```
Compute the internal rate of return for a series of cash flows

Stated by ODFF.

```
```
I couldn't find the Oasis definitions and i loathe looking through MS
but may not have been written by someone that really knows what they are
talking about.  I tried looking for something more generic and found this
hopelessly detailed page in wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Actuarial_science
also this unclear (and also long-winded) definition
http://www.investopedia.com/terms/a/actuarial-valuation.asp
and this one
http://definitions.uslegal.com/a/actuarial-value/

Would it be safer to just rewrite the equation it uses but rewrite in
English?  (probably not but sometimes it helps)
Regards from
Tom :)
