Tom1 suggested that these english wordings should be changed:

Even though this may seem splitting a hair, I would like to suggest changing a few English wordings in the source:

1. "Insert a new %s into the table before the actual one"
to: "Insert a new %s into the table before current"

2. "Insert a new %s into the table after the actual one"
to: "Insert a new %s into the table after current"

3. "Setup keys"
to: "Set up keyboard shortcuts" or even "Configure keyboard shortcuts"

4. "Key 1" and "Key 2"
to: "Primary shortcut" and "Secondary shortcut"

I'm not sure if 1. and 2. fit their context, but based on the German translation, I think the word 'current' is the corresponding English word.



Anybody from english speaking country to comment on it? Smile

I agree with all of those. 'current' is certainly much better than 'actual one' (which doesn't really mean anything in this context), but possibly 'current selection' would be even better.

And I would personally choose 'Configure keyboard shortcuts' as the clearest option for number 3.

I missed one item from the same context:

In theide "Setup" menu the "Keys.." menu item might be similarly changed to "Keyboard shortcuts..".
