English language improvements
« on: June 03, 2008, 07:42:25 AM »

This probably belongs to a different thread, but it occurred during the greek translation. I edited 100 english strings. In most of them I fixed capitalization. In other I added spaces and in some I changed the english. Let me know if you are interested in this kind of work.

The Greek translation has been committed, I've started to work on the English improvement and will write more later. Also I'll split the thread.

Edit: I shouldn't be allowed to improve anyone's English...:(

OK, there's one issue: How should we spell "ed2k"? Wikipedia uses eD2K, you prefer ED2K, I like Ed2k. Suggestions?

I think we should spell it consistently! :)
In the original it was either ED2K or ed2k, which looks a bit inconsistent. I would go with wikipedia: eD2k, just because it is already out there. I will submit an update soon.

I found some other inconsistent capitalizations, so I am resubmitting the file. Now I only use eD2k (as in wikipedia and also amule's wiki).
Please provide more feedback!

I am submitting some changes in the english languages. They are capitalizations, removal of repeated words, some grammatical corrections and few idiosyncratic corrections :)
I think the strings of the translations can be just marked as "fuzzy".
