#7958 closed (invalid)

Wrong capitalization in translations

Reported by: steadicat Owned by: nobody
Component: Internationalization Version: master
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The translations of some languages (Italian, French, Portuguese and probably others) use capitalized words for names of languages, months and weekdays. The standard for these languages is for all these names to be lower case.

Check other systems for comparison (e.g. /usr/lib/locale on Unix).

It was discussed and changed for Catalan and Spanish, and probably many Latin languages are in the same case.

A reference would be useful for knowing which languages are involved in this issue.

And then the patches would also be needed. :)

  • Component changed from Translations to Internationalization
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

There's nothing that can really be done to resolve this ticket as it's written. It should be addressed on a case-by-case basis by the relevant translators, as far as I can see. If there are core changes required to add a "title" filter in some places, that's a more specific ticket.

I'm going to close this one because it's a bit too general to fix. More specific tickets should be opened where appropriate.
