Description Mihkel Tõnnov 2017-12-26 11:24:49 UTC
The totals row/column header in pivot tables is composed of two separate strings:
"Total" = key-ID gX9QE, location: globstr.hrc:154, context: STR_PIVOT_TOTAL
"Result" = key-ID nRMet, location: globstr.hrc:141, context: STR_TABLE_ERGEBNIS

This makes it very difficult to translate correctly. It should be substituted with a proper single string: "Total Result".

Looking at the string definitions in the code (admittedly with layman's eyes) I get the suspicion that there may be more compounding in play besides the aforementioned:
https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sc/inc/globstr.hrc#154 has "Total", "Data", "Group"
https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sc/inc/globstr.hrc#140 has "Grand", "Result".

If that is indeed the case, all the possible combinations should be replaced with respective composites as single strings.
Comment 1 Mihkel Tõnnov 2017-12-26 12:11:09 UTC
Played around some more with a pivot table and found that "Total" is also compounded with these:
"Sum" = FDigt, globstr.hrc:181, STR_FUN_TEXT_SUM
"Count" = SZAUf, globstr.hrc:183, STR_FUN_TEXT_COUNT
"Average" = B58nD, globstr.hrc:185, STR_FUN_TEXT_AVG
"Median" = AoUSX, globstr.hrc:186, STR_FUN_TEXT_MEDIAN
"Max" = YMzF9, globstr.hrc:187, STR_FUN_TEXT_MAX
"Min" = A8fBH, globstr.hrc:188, STR_FUN_TEXT_MIN
"Product" = oZVg5, globstr.hrc:189, STR_FUN_TEXT_PRODUCT
"StDev" = 6FXQo, globstr.hrc:190, STR_FUN_TEXT_STDDEV
"Var" = NhH7q, globstr.hrc:191, STR_FUN_TEXT_VAR

All of these are also used on their own.

Not sure about the other strings I mentioned in comment #0.

The issue is inherited from OOo (found an old spreadsheet created with OOo 3.2.0 that shows "Total Result" translated in a way that could only stem from string compounding).

Let's set to NEW.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
