Shall we recommend to not translate these strings? Guess it could be solved in
this case by just hard coding.

No idea how I'd localized "Fill Bitmap Rectangle Point" as it makes absolutely
no sense with "Füllung Bild Rechteck Punkt". So my take -> hard-code strings.

I have no strong preference here, but if we don't translate them, then
having them "human-readable" makes no sense, and it's better to revert
to the internal API names, to avoid introduction of another useless
English-only name for something that is not available in other languages.

But for a random Russian user, who tries to understand why their text is
red, reading a random English description like "Color of character", or
random English-based ID like "CharColor", might be absolutely
incomprehensible. A string like "Цвет символа", to the contrary, would
make sense. So - well, on the second thought: no, we should not avoid
translation here, and we need these all technical strings to be
translated. Of course, an ideal translation might take iterations...

Best regards,
