Being realistic, even calling it a 22th century ware seems futuristic to me. DISCOVER is a complete basket case.

You have to come to terms with the fact that not everyone shares your opinions. You may not like Discover, but a lot of people do! If you don't like a particular piece of software then just don't use it. There is no place for name calling on UserBase, so please refrain from that in the future. The Talk page a just as public as anything else on UserBase. I have guided you to the community code of conduct. I urge you to read it.

Your edit doesn't really address the concerns of my previous comment. In future contributions please refrain from editorializing of any kind.

Are application names also to be translated ?

Hi all, Just as a reminder, do we keep the names of the applications in their original english form ? or do they follow normally the translation process as well ? . The wiki rule is we do not translate trade marks and product names. Here I see that Discover has been translated previously in french into 'Découvrir' (which is correct) but I m doubtful about what to do ... Thank you

The policy that I follow is to use the application name that users see. In Danish that always means the original name, whereas some widgets have their name translated to Danish, so I use the translated name on UB. This to me makes most sense.

As to existing French translations: If you think that the old translation is wrong just go ahead and correct it. If there are other active French translators on UB you might want to have a conversation about the policy.

ok it is a good idea. I consult french translator page which is page of good help ->*checkout*/trunk/l10n-support/fr/summit/messages/kde-workspace/plasma-discover.po shows:

trunk5 stable5 plasma5lts
discover/main.cpp:96 discover/qml/DiscoverWindow.qml:48
msgid "Discover"
msgstr "Discover"

More of that danish as you said and ukrainian use 'Discover'; so will I do - it is consistent with .po file and there is no reason for french to be apart.
