Confusing translation between english <> swedish

Bug Description

No real bug, but here goes.

In the control panel the Swedish translation of "backend" and "frontend" is "server" and "client". I as a beginner in using mythtv find this confusing.

I personally belive that "server" and "client" is a more "correct" term and had a hard time initially figuring out what the backend and frontends represented.

Regards,
Peter

So the swedish translation is Server/Client? Or that is what you think it
should be?

At any rate, Its Backend/Frontend Because not only are those the MythTV
names for the roles, but the applications them selves are named as such,
"mythbackend" "mythfrontend" so to keep things sane they are refered to as
such in everything else.

Nick,
the swedish translation is Server/Client. I agree that they should be
named consequently/similar to prevent missunderstanding. I do not know
what they are called in other languages.

Regards,
Peter

Peter,

Is there a better Swedish Translation you suggest then to get closer to
Backend/Frontend?

Well,
the direct translation of frontend and backend does not feel directly
suitable (framsida/baksida). These words translate back to english as
the front and back of something, for example the front of a house. I
guess the names can be left alone why this issue can be closed.

Peter,

Wouldn't "MythFromsida" and "MythBaksida" work?

If anything, they should be changed to frontend and backend. We Swedes are quite used to English, and the current translation makes no sense at all (using a different English word doesn't really count as a translation, but yeah..).
