Hi,

I'm working in IT, and we have a string translation in the czech language version of our software which looks wrong to me:

"$firstname $lastname has accepted the appointment:"

is translated as

"$firstname $lastname přijato pozvánku:"

According to my limited knowledge of czech this should be

"$firstname $lastname přijal(a) pozvánku:"

Am I correct, or is the first version possible as well?

děkuji mockrát za pomoc,

Sonja

Sorry.

Hi Sonja,

Your analysis is correct. The current translation is ungrammatical. Your translation is correct. However, I would propose using pozvání (invitation) instead of pozvánka (invitation letter).

That code looks like PHP. If so, my deepest condolences. :)

Thank you, that's most helpful, with that information I was able to open a bug to get it fixed.

It's not PHP, the file is actually in gettext/PO format, so I was using pseudocode to make it more readable here Wink
