Bug Description

As of Inkscape 0.48.1, "Hatches (rough)" is translated as "Luukut (karkea)" in Finnish (fi_FI) translation.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hatch
"Luukut" is translated as if it was from noun etymology 1; "trapdoors", "covers", "holes in wall". This makes absolutely no sense. What the application obviously *meant* was verb etymology 3; correct translation would be something like "Täytä viivoituksella".

This has been this way since at least December 2009. It's not a big issue, but you might start considering putting the translations to launchpad.net so people could fix them more easily - I'm sorry, but I'm not going to go through a bureaucracy and join a spam mailing list just to fix this thing. Hence this bug report. Please forward this bug report to the appropriate translation team.

I guess this is another vote for Launchpad translation group...
I assign this to Riku Leino who have been in charge of Finnish translation for the last releases..

@Riku, could you please confirm the issue? I'm not sure if you're still active as Inkscape translator, but would you be willing to give an appropriate translation so that we could close the report?
Thanks in advance!

The correct translation would be "ristiviivoitus (karkea)".

Fixed with the translation provided comment #3 in 0.48.x (rev. 9950) and the trunk (rev. 12381).
Thanks, Ville!
