Description pierre-yves samyn 2013-02-24 11:42:31 UTC

Input boxes (name of a new template, a new folder) include buttons Accept / Cancel.

1. This is not consistent with other dialogs: Ok expected
2. It is odd to accept something that I propose

Operating System: All
Version: rc

Not in Spanish, where the “OK” action button is translated as “Aceptar” (the one that “accepts” your command or input is the computer, not the user; does that make sense to you?). As Spanish is the native language of the new template manager’s developer, I guess that’s the reason why the OK button was labeled “Accept”.
Comment 3 Rafael Dominguez 2013-03-09 18:19:29 UTC
Your totally right, this should be changed to be consistent with the rest of the dialogs.

Have you noticed that my request is for the English version?

It goes without saying that the button labels must be translated into localized versions...
