Description

5 years ago
Bug 323747 renamed "Other Languages" to "Unicode" in the "Fonts & Encodings" dialog for TB. I think we should follow suit(e).

It's not very clear what "other languages" means. Technically it evaluates to Unicode. Some localizations, e.g. German, already show "Unicode" instead and I think it makes sense since it describes exactly what it means instead of introducing a term that needs explanation.

When fixing this, we should fix/adapt (en-US) Help in one go.

Overview of how this is translated into other languages (heh):

In my opinion, some of these translations already use "Unicode". Changing the entity only makes more work for those localisers. Perhaps a post to m.d.a.l10n instead?

Philip's suggestion is worth considering, kairo probably knows more about l10n than me, r=me either way

I notice that some locales have even translated the Firefox string as Unicode too. (Simply remove the pref- prefix to see strings for all applications.)

I sent a message to mozilla.dev.L10n. Let's see what they think.

FTR: There was just one reply, suggesting to change the entity name so we make sure that nobody misses the modification. [I'm leaving out the translation statistics provided there because they were for browser/ instead of suite/.] I tend to agree with that (better safe than sorry), so I'll go with my patch as-is.

Sorry I didn't get to look at it, but my first reaction was the same, I feel better with doing the change of entity name so people actually do look at it.
