Check all translatable strings in all code and templates and improve them:

  • must use good placeholder names (e.g. "%(name)s", not just "%s")
  • ALL translatable strings are marked as such
  • all translatable string must use NEWSTYLE gettext
  • is ngettext used where appropriate?
  • English orthography / grammar / translation OK?

You must deliver a patch with all your changes.


Skill Requirements

See Tags.

Your English skills should be equivalent to a native speaker with good language, grammar and orthography skills.

You will have to deal with Python code and Jinja2 templates, but you don't really need to do CODING, but just thoroughly apply some simple patterns (see docs linked from Details section).
