Hi all,

There's no commonly understood abbreviation for DnD in Finnish either, but the equivalent of "Shift+drag" would work. (Actually, I'm not sure if non-technical English speakers would understand "DnD" either?)

Heiko, is there any character limit on the translated string?

I also think that Shift should be written first, because that's the usual convention (and it's the logical order: you need to hold Shift before dragging).

Since there is no commonly accepted Bulgarian abbreviation for drag and
drop, I would translate "DnD+Shift" as "Shift+плъзгане" (Shift+drag),
leaving "and drop" to be only implied. Maybe something similar would be
suitable for other languages?

trigger the function via pup-up menu or per accelerator. And to give a

"Insert as

Now I wonder if DnD for Drag'n Drop is well-known and easy to translate.
could be "Ziehen & Ablegen" abbreviated to "Z&A" - which users would never
understand. Any idea?
