zh-TW: Create checksums > Create individual MD5 file for each file

#1 Post by danielchung » 10.11.2020, 02:57

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit
Version: FreeCommander XE 2020 build 831, 32-bit and 64-bit

Hi Marek,

If you open the "File > Create MD5 checksums" dialog,
the Chinese-Traditional (zh-TW) translation for "Create individual MD5 file for each file" currently reads:

為每一個檔案建立各別的 MD5-檔案

1. For one thing, Chinese does not use hyphens. So it would be not "MD5-檔案", but "MD5檔案".
You could continue to put spaces between Chinese text and ASCII if that is the current style, i.e. "MD5 檔案".
2. More important, "individual" would be not "各別" but "個別".
"各別" mean "individually different" (各有差別) and is often seen in Buddhist texts,
while "個別" means "individual" and fits the dialog.
These two do not sound the same, except for Mandarin-like dialects which has lost the "stopped tone" 入聲,
so that Mandarin speakers are in a disadvantage and might confuse the usage of some characters.

Hi Marek,

I took build 832 64-bit donor version and overwrote the "Chinese_t.lng" file from your zip.
The item which I mentioned is now correct.

Thanks.

Daniel
