In a post for the German translation, Herb made two suggestions. (Thank you, Herb!) Both suggestions affect all languages, therefore I repost herb's suggestions here:

Face tag: Warning message
Currently, when writing a face tage, a warning message appears saying that face tags exist which are overwritten. This message should only be displayed if there are really face tages in the image, already. See my post in topic Face tag plugin : Warning message

EXIF tags: "Original"
"Original" >
"Orientation"
XnViewMP_origin.jpg

Code: Select all

    <message>
        <location filename="InfoPropertiesView.cpp" line="135"/>
        <source>Origin</source>
        <translation>Original</translation>
    </message>

Judging from Pierre's comment, this has nothing to do with EXIF but with how the image data is stored in the file: “Origin” as in coordinate system (German: “Ursprung”).
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/directshow/top-down-vs--bottom-up-dibs wrote:If you are new to graphics programming, you might expect that a bitmap would be arranged in memory so that the top row of the image appeared at the start of the buffer, followed by the next row, and so forth. However, this is not necessarily the case. In Windows, device-independent bitmaps (DIBs) can be placed in memory in two different orientations, bottom-up and top-down.

May I summarize: English text "Origin" is correct and must not be changed. But German translation "Original" is wrong and is supposed to be changed to "Ursprung".
(Please holler if my summary is wrong.)

Yes. At least, that's my interpretation of Pierre's comment.
