Re: [libreoffice-l10n] Composite string in Help


HI Mihkel

I tried to be a smart guy and save work to myself (I'm a translator) but
my smartness isn't working... :-)

I separated the text from the version number, and apparently it is not a
solution.

To fix, I'll have to repeat "This function is available since
%PRODUCTNAME " for every release number (20 times), as shown in the
source file:

https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/help/source/text/scalc/00/avail_release.xhp?r=c7e09719

to let translator place the version number where they want in the
sentence. Not a big deal, given translation memory.

Thanks for pointing it. Fix is coming next year.

Kind regards
Olivier
