Re: Current translation status and some message errors/suggestions

Hi Arfrever,

thanks for replying. I know that I was just nitpicking and most messages
are probably OK, but if I have a doubt I ask as it is always easier to
check such a mail as my one as proofreading all the messages. I will
remove a few FIXMEs and TODOs from de.po :-)

Unlikely considering
"Trying to change property '%s' from '%s' to '%s',\n"
"but property has been locally changed from '%s' to '%s'."

"Trying to change property '%s' from '%s' to '%s',\n"
"but it has been locally deleted."

"Trying to change property '%s' from '%s' to '%s',\n"
"but the property does not exist."

...

Please decide for one version!

OK, will keep it in my list.

I guessed something as this. http://dict.leo.org reports it a adj.
I'm sure it's right, it's just very unusual for me :-)

That's often translated in this message which is probably OK.
Nevertheless I verified that "immediates" is used also in many other
messages where it is kept properly untranslated.
