Bug#512828: German translation of "Selecting the kernel to install..." not optimal

24/01/2009 - 11:20 von Martin Michlmayr | Report spam
Package: base-installer
Severity: 1.98
Severity: minor

The following German translation in base-installer isn't ideal:

msgid "Selecting the kernel to install..."
msgstr "Wàhlen Sie den zu installierenden Kernel ..."

In most cases, d-i is automatically selecting the right kernel and no
user input is needed [*], so the "please choose" the German
translation uses isn't great. I suggest the indirect "Wàhle den
zu..." or something like that.

I didn't check if other translations have the same problem. Maybe
some l10n expert could do that.

[*] And if user input is needed, another screen is shown which will
clearly say that the user has to choose a kernel.

At least in languages I can read and roughly understand, translations
seem correct. So the problem is very likely to be isolated to German.

German team, can you fix this in D-I trunk? When done, please add the
correct bug closure in base-installer/debian/changelog
