[ID:"gotoPage"] Support for displaying the destination page number in a location other than the end of a sentence

Post by rakunavi »

Hello Tracker Support,

The text ID: "gotoPage" for displaying the destination page of a GoTo action in the Links pane seems to implicitly assume that the destination page number is placed at the end of the link. However, in Japanese, placing the destination page number at the beginning of the sentence is a natural translation in such cases.

Specifically, when saying "Go to page 10" in English, it is common to write "10ページに移動" in Japanese. Placing the destination page number at the end of the sentence would inevitably result in an unnatural translation. It is a very trivial matter, but it bothers me a little when I see descriptions that do not make sense in Japanese every time I open the Links pane.

Most languages in the world seem to place the destination page number at the end of the sentence in such situations, but it would be nice if you could take into account languages that do not, and improve it by, for example, supporting variables such as "%1".

Please give my regards to developers and translators.
Thank you for your sincere support.

Best regards,
rakunavi

Hello, rakunavi

Thank you for the report, I am unsure if this is something to change within the Editor, or something which we need to adjust the string rules in our translation tool. In either case however, the Dev team have been notified of this request, hopefully we can see some improvement in the future.

RT#6937: FR: Bookmark "Action" text needs number in different position for some languages
