Subject Re: How to translate well known english words?
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2013 17:36:49 GMT
Both good points. I can only speak for the German side, but keeping the
original terms makes sense. But if other programming communities are used
to full translations (French comes to mind, but I am not sure), we should
go with whatever is best for the particular language and culture.

Best
