I think it's not a good idea to have strings in a software which cannot be translated at all. Think of Chinese people for example.
What are "Conbright" and "Gammasat"?

When I searched online once to try to find out, the only links were to XnView...

Conbright and Gammasat are both neologisms:
- Conbright is built out of "contrast" and "brightness". This function affects both contrast and brightness.
- Gammasat affects both gamma value and saturation.

In German there are terms "Kontrastumfang" and "Leuchtkraft" that are pretty close and give a better idea than "Conbright" and "Gammasat" (see herbs suggestion in ** Deutsch - German) . And in other languages there might be better terms, too. I'd suggest to add a translator note in QTLinguist to the English translation and let translators decide. E.g. "Conbright is a neologism. This function affects both Contrast and Brightness. You may translate this term to your language if you find a good term for it or just leave it as it is."

Shortcut cannot be translated: "Alt + Return"
This shortcut is still not translatable. ATM, in German XnView it says "Alt + Enter" while it's supposed to say "Alt+Eingabetaste". This shortcut can be found in Browser mode in menu "Edit > Properties".

Hello Pierre,

Working with XnViewMP version 1.00 I played around with various images of my collection.
The GUI is in German.

For some of them I have seen that in - info-area -> tab Exif -> image - some names are not translatable:
- Serial number
- Lens model
- Lens serial number
- Lens make

Also for FujiFilm MakerNotes I found that tagname DynamicRange is not translatable

For Exif-tags please see attached screenshots.

Adding the following tag-ID and translations to file exif_de.lng solved the problem in my German GUI:

Code: Select all

[0102-A431]
Label=Kamera Seriennummer
ValueList=

[0102-A433]
Label=Objektiv Hersteller
ValueList=

[0102-A434]
Label=Objektiv Modell
ValueList=

[0102-A435]
Label=Objektiv Seriennummer
ValueList=

[A060-1400]
Label=Dynamikbereich
ValueList=1#Standard, 3#Erweitert
Best regards
herb

In XnView MP 1.3.0 there seem to be non-translatable strings which have been found by herb and reported in German topic:

(2)
In Settings > Interface > Toolbar > View mode some labels "... (move to next photo)" aren't translated.

Thank you for reporting non-translatable strings, Mantis3D. Labels "Browser" and "Viewer" are supposed to be translatable - see screenshot in my above post, there it says "Bildbetrachter" and "Bildansicht-Modus".

EDIT:
Context and strings in QT Linguist are:
DlgSettingsInterfaceClass > BrowseMode
DlgSettingsInterfaceClass > ViewMode
