Switch around the text for the expected and actual results.

Can only think of 1 other word for Oriëntatie, but that would make the user wonder what is meant by that, so I’d rather not do that.

This probably needs one or even a half character only. Note the width / distance to the edge on the bottom left. If this could be minimized to the same width as on the right (next to the check box / switch) and in several screens, this and some other bugs would not exist. Can this be accomplished?

Minor note: I’d rather see vertical switches or just check boxes, as horizontal switches obviously eat valuable space (unless they are on top of or below their text), hence making this need a general UX solution.

https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/blob/master/apps/settings/style/lists.css#L113 has 

ul li > label.pack-switch > small {
   right: 9rem;

If we could make that a tad less, the string here would fit. Carol, would this be your turf?

hi Axel,
I like to know if the Lock Orientation text truncated situation happens ONLY in the Dutch language?

Based on the strings, there are a couple of locales at limit (hr, el).

I see a bug reported for Greek (bug 930291), not sure what's the QA coverage for Croatian (bug filings seems to have started today).

hey Francesco,
thanks for the strings link.

I would suggest two lines solution for now.
We should see how building blocks set the rules since it related to the system spec. thanks!

We've stopped shipping Firefox OS for phones. Thus resolving this as WONTFIX.
