In the website project I came across this string:

"Not the version you wanted?"

The problem is that in English, Chinese, etc "No" means "It is not the version wanted" whereas in Japanese, Polynesian languages, etc it means "I do not agree; it is the correct version."

Please change the question to:

"Is this the version you wanted?"
In English the replies "Yes" and "No" have the same meanings as they do for the negative question but for the other languages they have the opposite meanings.
