Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-06-23 01:26:46 UTC
If you open a document in Impress, the status bar label says 'Load Document', while in Calc is says 'Loading document' and in Writer it says 'Loading document...'. These labels should be unified to a single label to reduce duplication and translation unless the labels want to be unique like 'Loading presentation', 'Loading spreadsheet', etc.

Also i would assume we dont need the three dots at the end of the label, as we use three dots in labels to identify opening of dialogs.

Reasonable -> NEW

Probably best for simplicity to use a common "Loading document" label for each module.
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2017-06-23 07:22:07 UTC
No UX needed for this.
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2017-06-24 06:04:22 UTC
For completeness: I'd use "Loading document..." with ellipsis to indicate the ongoing process. But any consistent wording is okay and makes the life of translators easier.
