Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3375) Localize new error messages added in 10.3
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 22:43:08 GMT

Dyre Tjeldvoll commented on DERBY-3375:
---------------------------------------

Thanks for the feedback, Myrna and Knut.

Knut> Regarding the select tablename example in message 42818, would it be clearer to use
all upper case for the SQL keywords? 

Most definitely +1 to this one. I must admit I did not understand what the problem was when
I read your first comment. At first I thought the problem was that the English version had
been changed on trunk so that it no longer matched the 10.3 version which was sent to the
translators. But I could not understand it because I checked, rather diligently in my opinion,
that there weren't any changes on trunk that could be over-written by the translations (I
actually applied the new translations to the revision in which the 10.3 branch was created
and then updated to the HEAD revision. The only problem was that  J131 had been commented
out which conflicted with the translated version of that message. (I resolved that manually
in the patch). I don't really blame the translators for not recognizing that the whole sentence
is an sql query since only parts of it is capitalized.

Knut> I'm not sure I have used the correct gender for 'Upgrade'. Most places in the existing
messages it is treated as neuter, but at least one place it is treated as masculine.

I seem to have a vague recollection from my high-school German class that Nouns ending with
'e' usually were feminine. But I also seem to remember something about the such rules not
applying to imported foreign Nouns. According to http://woerterbuch.reverso.net/deutsch-englisch/Upgrade
 the gender of 'upgrade' is neuter. Which in turn means we probably should correct the places
where it is treated as masculine.
