Those are examples of actual menu commands followed by a short explanation of each. And yes one of the primary definitions of "remove" is to "get rid of" which includes "delete".

When explaining a short term such as a menu entry, you typically never use the same words that you are trying to explain. Otherwise the explanation is circular.

Since that first term is menu command, it should always be translated identically to how Sigil shows it when its user interface language matches your translation target.

You may want to check out the '.ts' files for your target language if in doubt.

Thanks Kevin.

But I asked a little about something else.
When you design a user interface in a program, do you equate "Remove" and "Delete" or do you put different meanings into the actions that these words stand for?

The user interface has literally evolved over years, and changing menu items after many years is frowned upon. So the use of Remove and Delete are interchangeable in most cases and the exact choice was to use whichever felt the most apt by the developer that added that menu when its feature was added.

I've just checked the official MS glossary and they use удалить for both remove and delete:
For example:

Code:
Delete File	Удалить файл
Remove file	Удалить файл

Far from official
Remove if something is left behind (eg some selectors in a CSS)
Delete if it is all gone.
EPUB muddles this as it is really an archive of many pieces
So Delete applies to a complete Piece (item) in the archive wheras the CSS is still there after deleting unused selectors)

I am of the same opinion.

Remove - an entry from the list.
Delete - the entire list.

And as I said, both do include as one of their meanings "get rid of" according to the dictionary. For example - you can either remove or delete lines from a file.

The main point is that we're not going to change a menu item that's been the way it has for years and years and years.

So no one is asking you to do that.

Then I guess I don't understand why this new conversation is happening. Carry on.

Hello,

There is a small spelling mistake in the French translation, but I have no idea how to report it

Hopefully this topic is a good place to speak about it

I'm using Sigil 1.9.20 on macOS Ventura 13.2.1.

The mistake is in the "Tools" menu, in the "Epub3 tools" submenu: the "Generate NCX/Guide for epub2 e-readers" is translated "Générer un NCX/Guide pour les lisseuses ePub2" when in French "e-readers" is written "liseuses": https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liseuse

Done!

Today I finished translating the Sigil User Guide into Russian.
All inaccuracies and typos identified during the work were sent to GitHub for correction.
Along the way, quite a few clarifications were made to the Russian and Ukrainian translations on Transifex.

There is one question left. How to add a translator to book metadata? Not the second author with the role of translator, namely the translator.
If you have any thoughts on this, please share.

Could use - Contributor metadata tag with Marc Relator code for Translator ("trl") since technically not an author. In your case you could even use editor code since you have found and made corrections. Not sure if there is any other way with metadata.

You should add your name as Translator to the title page, and as contributing author. I will add it to the authors list for the English version.

You also might want to set up a github site for your translation so that others can contribute changes as new features are added to Sigil.

Then we can add a link to it from our Sigil ReadMe if you like.
