> "switch download list to clients you're downloading from, with files also " "(some day)"

This is the tip in the button in the upper rigth corner of the transfers window. it is supposed to switch (change) the files list into a list of clients which ar euploading to you. but it is not implemented yet.

> "aMule will sort the columns in your download list automatically"
aMule, currently, doesn't automatically sort the clients, files, sources, etc, in teh transfers lists. isntead, it just does so from time to time. This option will make aMule update the lists every few seconds or every time a modification happens.

> "Bootstrap known clients"
> "Bootstrap"
This are Kademlia stuff. Bootstrap is the procedure Kademlia uses to connect with other clients IIRC. You can leave it unstranslated for now since Kademlia support isn't enabled yet.

> "Automatic server connect without proxy"
No idea :-/ Phoenix probably knows. I'll PM him so that he answers here.

> "\tRemoved transferwnd"
this indeed must be fixed. transferwnd means "transfer window". for the moment, translate it literally . after release, will be fixed to look more "understandable" ;-)

thanks for the tips on non-understandable senteces ;-) will be fixed after release. You'll never see them again! :-P

According to offical eMule help "Automatic Server Connect without Proxy" means:
Checking this option will bypass the Proxy settings when auto-connecting to eMule / eDonkey servers.

It seems "Bootstrap" for KAD means "booting" or "starting".
