I just noticed this in the release notes of gdm 2.15:

No; it's awful.

I'm in complete and utter approval, not only is it a nasty Americanism, it doesn't even represent what "Cancel" does.

How about "Redo from Start" :-)

In terms of alternative Gnome translations, I have contributed some files to the Olde Englisc translation of Gnome (ang locale). I've often been tempted to do a full Yorkshire variant:
	"'appen tha's filled up tha's disc, lad."
	"Connect t'Internet?"
	"Tha's not entered nowt int' boxes"
	"Stop laiking 'round and just enter t'stuff"

Who could complain about that?
