Title: Proof-read english desktop strings

openSUSE-11.3: New
Requester: Desirable

Info Provider: (Novell)
Requested by: Juergen Weigert (jnweiger)
Partner organization:

the software strings that are fed to our translators are not in the
expected qualtiy. We should find and address ambiguous or misleading
messages, as this causes problems during translation.
I suggest to proofread software strings and implement a feedback
channel to upstream through our packagers. This request seeks a sponsor
from SLED product management and - obviously - seeks approval for
sharing the results with the world.

Documentation Impact:
Allocate Proofreader Resources

Business case (Partner benefit): Improve User Experience. Avoid incorrect localization.

+ Can you give me an example of a string that has poor quality?  Are
+ there any bugs open in Bugzilla against bad strings?
+ Thanks.
