Re: gnumeric: Note to translators

   #. * Note to translators: in the following string and others like it,
   #. * the "/" is a separator character that can be changed to anything
   #. * if the translation needs the slash; just use, say, "|" instead.
   #. *
   #. * The items are bundled like this to increase translation context.
   #: src/analysis-tools.c:798
   msgid ""
   "/Mean/Standard Error/Median/Mode/Standard Deviation/Sample "

   I'm not convinced this was an idea that clever -- now we've to translate
   these terms again and again in different combinations ;)

We have two choices:

1. The old word-by-word translation scheme.  The translations will
   never become good.  "Mean" could become "heisst", "Durchschnitt",
   "gemein", and probably a zillion other things -- you need context
   to decice.

2. The new block-by-block.  Your typing finger will ache, but at least
   you get the possibility of correct translations.


(Who thinks we should make en_UK the primary language of Gnumeric and
make the US people set their locate to fit their dialect.)
