In the website project I came across this string:

"Not the version you wanted?"

For context:

The text below the dl-buttons above the area that allows to
change/override the auto-detection/preselection.

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."

Well - that of course depends on how that string is translated.

Please change the question to:

"Is this the version you wanted?"

No, then the answers/options "yes and no" would also have to be there.

"Not the version you wanted?" is a short form of "If this is not the
version you want, go on and change the parameters below".

So I'm not opposed to changing the string in general, but changing it
to "Is this the version you wanted?" doesn't fit, since it is not a
real question. It is an invitation to change the parameters if they
don't fit.
The meaning is "Please change the settings below in case the currently
selected version is not the one you want to download."
