2009-08-13 String Review by Liz

A string review of the English text has been made by Liz - thanks a lot! Additional proposals have been added to improve the meaning of several string. The current intermediate result has to be reviewed again. Until then, there won't be any updated mockup for "Current Design Mockup".

Liz Kept Proposal (optional) to change "Printer Details" to "Details"
  • Will be kept unchanged, since the group title is a bit far away - so this won't hurt (hopefully). --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Liz Undecided The sub-group name "Thereof print" seems to be an issue because of the mixture of nouns and verbs. Liz proposed "Withing the print range, print:".
  • @Liz: What about "Within range" (shorter), because then we would be able to re-add the group line? --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Liz Accepted Proposal to change "Print Page Preview" to "Preview"
  • Funnily, there there is nothing like a "Print Page Preview" in my the wiki secton "Definitions". So I'll change that to "Print Preview" (wiki pages will get updated, too). --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Liz Undecided Proposal to change the group name "Print", since it is inconsistent with the rest of the dialog (verb vs. nouns). And it seems to be ambigious.
  • @Liz: How about "Printout", since "Contents" is already used elsewhere... --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Liz Accepted Proposal to change button caption "Print to file..." to "Print to File...".
Liz Undecided Proposal to remove "right pages / left pages" from "Include, because it won't work for RTL text direction.
  • Regina noticed that, too (some days before). Personally I would like to make "front sides / back sides" a bit more self explaining. @Liz: How about "Front sides / odd pages" and "Back sides / even pages" (or is it required to say e.g. "odd-numbered")? --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Christoph New Change "Add blank pages for page breaks" to "Add blank pages for page breaks automatically". From my point it isn't clear that only some page breaks are affected. Originally I had something like "for certain page breaks" which isn't clear enough.
  • @Liz: Does the added "automatically" improve the understandability? --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Christoph, Jörg New Writer: Added/changed drop-down entries for Notes, since there was no proposal yet. The current proposals for "Notes" are:
  • None (document only)
  • Notes only
  • List at the end of document
  • List at end of page
Regina, Christoph New Draw/Impress: Changed "Distribute on multiple pages" to "Distribute on multiple sheets", since we may better refer to "sheets" when thinking of physical paper sheets. A similar naming has been used on the "Page Layout" tab page. Unfortunately, this is different to the currently used string and also difficult to understand with regard to Calc (worksheet vs. paper sheet). Discussion on main printerpullpages talk page.
  • @Liz: What do you think? --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Regina New Draw/Impress: Changed "Size: Tile pages" to "Size: Tile slides" for Impress. This has been a mistake.
  • Should be okay without an additional review. --ChristophNoack 20:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Christoph New Writer: Changed option "Graphics and diagrams" to "Pictures and drawings". "Pictures" improves consistency, the former "diagrams" has simply been wrong.


The reviewed mockup including Liz' comments and additional markups to highlight the comments. Sorry for the quality, since I changed to a JPG to reduce its size.
