openlp/plugins/bibles/lib/ should mention the possibility to use "," or "v" as separator (Genesis 1,3 = Genesis 1:3 = Genesis 1v3).

No it doesn't. Genesis 1,3 is Genesis chapters 1 and 3. We could add

                 'Book Chapter\n'
                 'Book Chapter-Chapter\n'
+ 'Book Chapter,Chapter\n'
                 'Book Chapter:Verse-Verse\n'

if you think it needs the extra example.

The comma as a verse separator is a translators issue (see the German regex and comment in bibles/lib/

In plugins\media\lib\, the two strings on lines 139 and 153 are currently using a translation from the Presentation plugin. Change these to one owned by itself.

yeah... You are right, Genesis 1v3 is not the same as Genesis 1:3.

About Tab credits need to be aligned to the copyright text but as they are in a translate string.
Should this be a dictionary of translates to make for easier maintenance?

The last step of the wizard is labeled "Setting up and Importing" Openlp is not importing anything.
The bar shows Download complete and nothing is being downloaded
I suggest removing "and Importing" and "Download complete"

#5 Done.

I think this is higher importance than "Low"!

I am just fixing tooltip strings and this will reset all tooltip string which are affected. Same with this bug... All strings affected will probably need to be re translated. And the release of Beta 1 is not more than a month ago. In favour of our translators:
1) Lets fix this (strings in general) *soon*
2) Notify them and possibly upload a "backup" of the old translations files, so they they do not have to translate
- Add a new Bible.
- Add a new Song.
- Add a new Image.
- Add a new Media.
again, just because we missed the period, instead may be able to do some copy and past.

"Replace" strings in core/lib/ui are not Sentence case and do not end with a period (as these are tooltips)

Just an addition to my previous post:
I don't/didn't want to blame anybody, I just wanted to make clear how urgent I consider this bug. (I probably did add a few wrong strings myself. Who is perfect?)

reported above, but the line numbers changed:
