Summary0007924: [menu / fades] Mistake in German translation / maybe emprovement for English too?
DescriptionThere is a mistake in the German menu:
> Edit / Fade / Fade In Length
is translated to:
> Bearbeiten / Fade / Fade-In bis Positionsanzeiger

That literally means “Fade In to Playhead” and that is wrong, because the fade is done to the Edit Point!

The solution could be: “Fade-In-Länge” (English: Fade In Length), or maybe “Fade-In setzen” (English: Set Fade In), or maybe “Fade-In bis Arbeitspunkt” (English: Fade In to Edit Point).

Quite honestly, the last option would be most logical IMHO, even for the English version!?

Thanks for your attention!

I have corrected the translation for Ardour 6 (gtk2_ardour/, currently line 1577 and 1578, where the string has changed to "Set Fade In Length", to be literal: "Fade-In Länge setzen"), see pull request 0000530 at Ardour's github mirror. Same for the Fade Out action.

Once the PR is merged, this ticket can be closed.
