I am occasional contributor to Polish (pl) translation of LibreOffice.
Recently I stumbled upon awkwardness in our translation and was asked
by our coordinator to send message to this list. If this is not most
appropriate place to raise such issues, please point me at right

Particular label for input box in Polish is translated in ambiguous
way. I could make it clear for Polish users, but in a way that cuts
relationship with English string. Our coordinator says I should not,
because in few years someone might review current translation and -
unaware of context - change it back to literal translation from English
(which is not good).

So, I would like to propose change of English string. In this way
Polish translation will be clearer for users and closer to "upstream".
I believe that English will not loose any value with this change.

LibreOffice Calc, main pivot table window (Data → Pivot table →
Create... with at least two cells selected; skip first window), in
expandable part of window ("More" button) .

Label for very first input box - "Selection from".

Change to:
"Source" or "Data source"
It directly relates to purpose of input box labeled - which provides a
way for user to manually enter/change range of cells that will be used
to create pivot table.

Please let me know what do you think of this change and what should I
done in similar cases in future.

(I am subscribed to the list, so no need to CC me.)
Best regards
Mirosław Zalewski
