Misleading string in preferenceInterface.py

Bug Description

About this string: "Please confirm the WM supporting this function, otherwise it won't work!"

It appears in a dialog with only a "Ok" button, so there is nothing to confirm here in fact. And it's kind of obvious that it won't work if the function is unsupported.

Why not using something like "To avoid any problem, please check if your WM support this function."?
(this is basically word-for-word what we use in the French translation)

Thanks for your great work of translating this application into French.

While you are at it, I noticed two other typos:

- "Genernal" instead of "General" in mainGui.py (string number 144 in lp)
- "foramt" instead of "format" in "preferenceGeneral.py" (string number 164 in lp)

Tips: open the pot file with your favourite text editor and spell-check it!
I did it quickly here and I detected the following:
(you may want to try it yourself, perhaps with the combination of a grammar checker)

"manger" instead of "manager" in "preference.py" (string number 203)
"ocurrs" instead of "occurs" in "mainGui.py" (string number 115)
"embeded" instead of "embedded" in "preferenceGeneral.py" (string number 157)
"choise" instead of "choice" in "selectItemLocal.py" (string number 224 in lp)

I should say sorry to you, it's my fault.
You know, there is no spelling conception in Chinese, I disabled this function in my kde desktop, but I could try this in openoffice.
Anyway, thank you again and again!

Hi,

I'm not sure about two strings:

- "Tag type of embedding lyrics to operation:" (preferenceGeneral.py)
→ "Tag format to use:" may be better?

- "Including cancellation the lrc" (preferenceInterface.py)
→ I don't get this one. I tried the relative checkbox but I didn't see any difference…

These are the last untranslated strings in French, so after this I will leave you in peace ;)

Say the turth, I don't like the "peace", I wish the translation would be updated every day. So I should thank to you, at least the French translation is almost finished.

The first string, your suggestion is not good. There are 4 embedded tags chould be chosen, so user should choose one as the default. But there is a misstake, I should change into "to operate".

The second one, I don't know if I change to "Apply the same effect when user cancel the lyrics manually", could be better?

For me "Tag format to use:" and "Tag type of embedding lyrics to operate:" have the same meaning in this context (except one is shorter).

But, if you are sure, I guess it's ok :-)

Ok, thanks, now I understand this function.
Why not "Do the same when you cancel lyrics manually"? (or something
like that)

I modified the pot file, and updated to the server. Please continue report if "strange" strings still exist.
Thank you very much.
