I moved the checkboxes to the options tab and placed the buttons on the bottom, this way they can be wider and fit the translated text as expected.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Sounds good.
But then you should also move the 'options' tab from tools to the main window.

A second complain: Some translations are longer then the English original (It is well known that an English sentence translated into German usually has about 50% more letters)


Yep, as Mark Twain said, "Some German words are so long that they have a perspective."

Just for fun, Italian longest word is traditionally "precipitevolissimevolmente", a VERY RARELY used adverb, that with it's 26 letter is "beaten" by the longest accepted English word "antidisestablishmentarianism" (28), but nothing of course compares with:
QUOTE
Rindfleischetikettierungsberwachungsaufgabenbertragungsgesetz

63 letters meaning "beef labeling regulation & delegation of supervision law"

though sometimes this word (80 letters):
QUOTE
Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizittenhauptbetriebswerkbauunterbeamtengessellschaft

"association of subordinate officials of the head office management of the Danube steamboat electrical services" (the name of a pre-war club in Vienna) is cited as the longest one!

From my German point of view:
While the second word is a (nonsence) joke, the first word really is something which could have been invented by administration.

And
QUOTE
Rindfleischetikettierungsberwachungsaufgabenbertragungsgesetz

really could be expanded to
QUOTE
Rindfleischetikettierungsberwachungsaufgabenbertragungsgesetzesvorlage

You should learn German. There sometimes exist also short words like 'Bundeskanzleramtsvorsteher'

Peter

BTW Just to explain:

Bundeskanzler: Our Prime Minister
Amt: His (currently her) office
Vorsteher: The administrative boss of the office

Completely off topic too, but the longest word in portuguese that I know of is: "pneumoultramicroscopicossilicovulcanoconitico" proudly using 46 words, one more than it's english equivalent: pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

Still no match for the above mentioned german word.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/roll1.gif)

Nuno, you are cheating (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) , "scientific" words don't count, the word must be found and "usable" in a normal dictionary, on a diffused book/newspaper or on national laws or norms.
QUOTE
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis
(45 letters) "lung disease caused by breathing in silica dust" - Linguists claim this is an artificial word, and it does not deserve true "longest word" billing.

Technical words: There are many English technical and medical terms that qualify as long words, but they are usually excluded from the longest-word game.

Well, it's funny to see how many people still try to spell it correctly, so I guess it will *likely* become an accepted word mostly because of the challenge of trying to pronounce it, don't you think? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)
