Description Andrea Pescetti 2012-12-29 15:50:47 UTC
String 1I_3 (description: STR_QUERY_FORMULA_RECALC_ONLOAD_ODS ) in the English version has a hard-coded Product Name:

This document was last saved by application other than LibreOffice.  Some formula cells may produce different results when recalculated.

Assuming that the relevant code compares with [ProductName] and not with a literal "LibreOffice", [ProductName] should be used here too. On the other hand, if the code compares with a literal "LibreOffice" it should probably be fixed (at least, the behaviour should remain the same if I set [ProductName] to something else).

[Found during Italian translations for version 4.0]
