[By Design] Photo beta .116 Localisation

Recommended Posts

(I found no other posting to collect all the possible localisation issues in photo, so I start a new one)

 

German: "Cyan", not "Zyan"

the color "Cyan" as in the "Selektive Farbkorrektur" or selective color correction is wrongly translated to "Zyan". I checked and it is also in the 1.6 release.

Google Translate tells me that „das Zyan“ is cyanogen gas.

DeepL uses Cyan for cyan and suggests Cyan for blue-green. Zyan is in the list of alternates, but not top of the list..

Hi @woefi,

We have checked with our translator and both spellings are correct. 

I'm sorry, but while it's true that these both words exist in german, that does not mean they are used for the same thing.

If you talk to someone (german) in the printing-industry they will all tell you that the correct way to spell the name of the printing-plate as Cyan. That's technical language.

I'm reminded of CorelDRAW! which confused us when they used "Aquamarin" instead of Cyan, back in the old days...

As of now, all usual suspects in this app-landscape (adobe/quark/corel...) use the term "Cyan" as german translation. 

 

See german Wikipedia: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/CMYK-Farbmodell

or:  https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyan#Cyan_als_Grundfarbe_im_Vierfarbdruck
