Details

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; de-DE; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; de-DE; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0

Please use Macintosh terminology in the Firefox interface in German localization.

The menus are/should be:

--- file menu
"Datei" (file) menu should be "Ablage"
"Seite speichern unter..." (Save page as...) should be "Sicher unter…" (or
"Seite sichern unter…")
"Seite einrichten..." (Page setup) should be "Papierformat…"

--- edit menu
"Rückgängig" (Undo) should be "Widerrufen"
"Wiederherstellen" (Redo) should be "Wiederholen"
"Einfügen" (Insert) should be "Einsetzen"
"Alles markieren" (select all) should be "Alles auswählen"
"Abwärts suchen" (find again) should be "Erneut finden"

--- view menu
"Ansicht" (view) menu should be "Darstellung"

--- window menu
"Minimieren" (minimize) should be "Im Dock ablegen"
"Alles nach vorne bringen" (bring all to front) should be "Alle nach vorne bringen"

--- help menu
usually the first menu item is called "<app name> Help" on Mac and has a command
questionmark shortcut. That woul be "Firefox Hilfe" in German. "Hilfethemen"
(help topics) sounds sort of OK though.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
ps:
view->font size is "Schriftgrad": this sounds too technical. On Mac I have
always only seen this called "Schriftgröße".

Summary: Use Macintosh terminology in German localization → [Firefox] Use Macintosh terminology in German localization
Leider können wir Mac und Windows/Linux nicht unterschiedlich übersetzen, ohne
getrennte locales anzulegen (wie z.B. in Japan geschehen). Ich bin eher für eine
technische Änderung die unterschiedliche Übersetzungen erlaubt. Zwei bugs zu dem
Thema existieren bereits, weitere werden angelegt.

Ich resolve das mal als INCOMPLETE. Vielleicht kommt irgendwann mal eine platform-abhaengige Loesung, aber im Moment gibt es nichts zu tun.
