#10079 closed defect (fixed)

possible problems in English strings (part 2)

Reported by: aceman Owned by: team
Priority: trivial Milestone: 14.06
Component: Core Version: latest
Keywords: Cc:


I encountered the following possible problems in English strings:

Double "in" ?
#: ../core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/io/
#, java-format
msgid ""
"Unexpected format for port number in in preference {0}. Got {1}."

NOT inputing source is allowed and ASSISTS other users? Inputing source assists. This needs to be reworded better.
#: ../core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/io/
msgid ""
"You did not specify a source for your changes.<br />This is technically "
"allowed, but it assists other users <br />to understand the origins of the "
"data.<br /><br />If you spend a minute now to explain your change, you will "
"make life<br />easier for many other mappers."

"It may result of"? Probably "It may be a result of".
#: ../core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/
#, java-format
msgid ""
"JOSM tried to access the following resources:<br>{0}but <b>failed</b> to do "
"so, because of the following network errors:<br>{1}It may result of a "
"missing proxy configuration.<br>Would you like to change your proxy settings "

Feel free to rephrase messages, there are certainly a lot of texts that sound strange to a native speaker.
