Although less frequent and different than in 1.1(see Bug 892075), there are still text truncation issues throughout 1.2. 

This happens across different 1.2 shipping locales, and includes some English occurrences as well.

Let's track these here to get a better view of where it needs to be solved and how we can solve this

I’m not sure I understand what’s going on here… Are all these bugs regressions? I.e. did those same strings fit in 1.1?

Bug 927785 might have helped, but this bug is only about list items in the Settings app. Can we have an idea of what apps and app components are concerned by these truncations?

As an example: how much would it help if we reduced the font-size in the title bars? I think it would greatly improve the readability, even for English — and we could even reduce the title bar height, thus getting more vertical screen estate for the content… Is there a bug for that by any chance?
Kaze, this bug covered some truncation issues in title bars: bug #908300. Not sure that's exactly what you're looking for.

Thanks for the pointer Stephany, but how many of the bugs tracked in this meta-bug would be solved by bug 908300?

Or to put it another way: as a developer, what would be the most efficient way for me to help to reduce these truncations? If we can identify which application or which UI component is raising the most truncation issues, we could focus on those and do our best to fix them properly.

Besides, I think we should watch these most-impacted apps or UI components closely to make sure we (= developers) haven’t introduced regressions in the latest branch. I’m a bit scared that l10n-related regressions are not enough taken in consideration during the development process, and I’m rather confident we could improve this by relying on some of our most talented volunteers (hi Théo! ^^) if we knew where to look at.

I hope this clarifies my question a bit. Sorry for being unclear. :-/
