Why the rush in willing to translate the po on your own then ?
and why the hell are you using this "sorry it's not my fault i'm not
perfect" kind of excuse ?
this bit is just the worst translation ever, deal with it ! (not
smiling anymore)

it !

Klaus, ever thought of adding help/descriptions for every menu entries
and a generic button/key (à la F1) to trigger the help OSD ?
It's definitely difficult to provide short translations of short
english technical keywords and sentences.
