Typo's, grammar issues etc... lets make a list!

In Passkeeper security info:

Make the question tabbed in line with the answer
Use the correct apostrophe so there's no weird spaces in words. There's more than just those marked below.

Just had another look:

Last line first question should be "to ensure your password information is secure".
2nd question should be "won't be affected by changing devices"
3rd "please change to a more complicated password..."

Sigh...And there's probably more...

Thanks for pointing out! 7twenty, that's a good start!

Sure MX5 is approaching perfect with your proofread!

 

IWhile the strange thing is that the weird space does not show on my side

Could it be related to fonts? I'm using font.png

And when I set it to default, it shows the same as 7twenty's pic!

Tahoma also displays correctly.

I think it's irrelevant what fonts it works with or not, especially as Maxthon doesn't have any advanced font management options.

Default, which is what most users will be using, is what it should be made to display with correctly.

And all that is required is the use of the standard apostrophe, instead of the weird non-standard variation that is in use at the moment.

This is what is being used - Alt+0146 on the keypad to type it.

' This is what should be used - apostrophe key on keyboard.

As to why it's happening, i don't know, but the fix is simple.

Agreed!!

Have reported it as a bug ;)

Update?

Also, on the Passkeeper lock screen there is a space after "welcome". This is due to a non-standard character being used as noted above.

There is no translation string found for this on Crowdin. Fix it and add it to Crowdin.

Hi Rob, we've reported two bugs here.

And the one to make it aligned has been fixed after version 1200.

While the one to change the sign ' has not been fixed yet. I'll push this issue again.

Hi Rob, these two bugs have been fixed in version 5.0.2.2000, please have a check. 

Will change the content later.

Decided to double check the fixes... and yes the ones marked in the image are fixed, yet the ones noted just below that (as quoted above again) are still not fixed.

Does everything need to be an image and marked with the issues for things to change? Should it have been bolded? Bigger? Pink? *sparkles* and 19b7e97fc5d42820d39113032bd2bf79.pngfireworks19b7e97fc5d42820d39113032bd2bf79.png maybe?

There's a saying in English - Do it once and do it right. I guess there isn't a similar one in Chinese?!?

Give me access to the files and i'll do it directly instead of waiting 2.5 months for the job to not be done properly...

Hi 7twenty,

The content in Security info pop-up is not included in the source language file, but should be corrected directly from the coding side by the dev team.

BugSir006 has reported this issue to them the first time she received your message. Recently, the dev team are busy with fixing bugs to prepare the next release verion, so there may be some delay. But don't worry! We are keeping pushing them and these mistakes will surely be corrected ASAP.

Have just moved to an Android device...so here's a list of the typo's etc that i've found that bug me.

For whatever reason, many of these don't seem to be in the CrowdIn language files. Don't know why that is?

1/ Missing space after Plus > Should be Adblock Plus (beta)  !!not in crowdin translations!!
Un-default > Should be Not default
2/ Missing space after Maxnote > Should be Maxnote (bookmarks) | Download > should be Downloads
3/ Doesn't make sense > Should be Incognito enabled or Switched to Incognito
4/ "To" doesn't need capitalisation > Should be Add to Launcher
5/ Smart display image doesn't make sense > Should be Smart image display !!not in crowdin translations!!
6/ "The" doesn't need capitalisation and not really required. > Should be Close Browser or Close the Browser !!not in crowdin translations!!
7/ No Download > Should be No Downloads or No Downloads found

8/ Help to block > Should be Helps block ads and... or Enable to block ads and... Depending on how much expectation you want on the adblocking capabilities in the mobile version.
9/ Auto FullScreen > Should be Auto Fullscreen
10/ Quick Scroll by volume (+/-) > Should be Quick Scroll using volume keys (+/-)
11/ Turns off when backward is not available > Should be Disable back button when not available

Hopefully that will be it...

Also wondering why so many strings and none of the above are available in the crowdin translations?

Update all these except for the 7th, since the number is dynamic in the string, so I'll work with the product manager to see if there is any workaround.

As for the strings on crowdin, I'll talk with our mobile team to see if there is any miss on the whole process.

The problem wasn't the number, that would obviously change being a variable. The problem is the incorrect use of block/blocked.

Also wondering, in #3 for Web Gestures, the toggle should probably be "Enable Web Gestures", makes it a little more obvious that it's to enable/disable.

Found this a while ago, but forgot about it.

In settings for close tab options, by default you see this:

Missing space between the black and grey text.

When you check then uncheck the box, the info text disappears?

I think its by design, not much need to know how to over ride the setting if it isn't being used. But I'm sure one could argue that ppl might not set it if they think it can't be over ridden.

It's been fixed since that was posted. 

Previously it would show when first loading, then disappear when unchecking the box which would make sense as you said.

Android .3038

Main menu and User menu still shows "Download" instead of Downloads

Download, still says "No Download" instead of No Downloads

Main menu, "Smart image display" now says "no image". Either keep it as it was or change it to "Display images"

I'm guessing this version is using an older translation as these seem to be correct on CrowdIn

Yes, you are right. That is the case.

Should be updated in next version.
