I guess the translation to german is broken.


If I look to "Berechnungseinstellungen" (calculation settings) and will change (primary/home/school/work) I see a Link for this: %1-Einstellungen
Only "Einstellungen" would be well.

If I click on this Link all checkboxes are cleared.
I would need to check all boxes (again).

Also there I should see "Speichern" I see: %1-Einstellungen


Also in the overview of the top_host_list also my own PC overview is now bigger than 1024x768.
I need to scroll to the right to see all.

The titles of the table/column is much bigger in german than before in english.
"Projekt├╝bergreifende Statistiken:" and then followed with the URL-pics of BOINCSTATS and Free-DC, if there would be a 'RETURN' between Projekt├╝bergreifende and Statistiken and not all in one line this would be smaller.

I guess then it should be well for 1024x768 without scrolling to the right.

People which don't want to show their PCs, this PCs were marked as 'anonymous' in the top_host_list - IIRC.

The german usage is current "ungenannt" ('nameless').
Would it not better to use also "anonym" or "unbekannt"?

Hmm.. who made the german translation??

'Work' (location of the PC) is now "auf Arbeit"?
This is dialect.


I would use "bei der Arbeit".

If school is "in der Schule", so if this isn't also too long.


I stop now to look with wide opened eyes.. maybe I'll find more.. ;-)

Something is wrong here. When I look at other people's computers in their accounts it's not in English.

Edit: Well, half of it is not English.

I haven't changed a thing around here, always have the language set to English, but the other day I found something similar happen to someone else's computer list as well. The next I looked at, to cross-reference, was all in English again. Gremlins, I think. :)

It's already set for English. Everything else on the site was in English except when looking at people's computer lists.

I get this when looking at the language setting:
The currently selected language is en (English).

Must be Gremlins! LOL :)

It's working like it should now. Set to English and displayed in English.
