Bug Description

There is a wrong translated string in latest Ubuntu 18.04 for system reporting when we can safely unplug USB drive. Translation says it is not safe to unplug the drive while the real string in English says it is safe. So the user waits for message that never shows. The Gnome project already corrected the string in https://github.com/GNOME/gvfs/blob/master/po/sl.po but Ubuntu still uses wrong translation.

Original string:
msgid ""
"%s can be safely unplugged\n"
"Device can be removed."

Wrong string:
msgstr ""
"Naprave %s ni mogoče varno odklopiti.\n"
"Trenutno naprave ni mogoče odstraniti."

Corrected string:
msgstr ""
"Napravo %s je mogoče varno odklopiti.\n"
"Napravo je mogoče odstraniti."

Thanks for your report. To correct it in Ubuntu 18.04, that translation needs to be corrected directly in Launchpad:


If it happens very soon, the corrected translation will be available to the users in 18.04.1.

Thank you Robert for reporting it.

@gunnarhj you can (or should i?) mark it as fixed (until release)

Thank you, Dražen! I mark it as "fix released" now even if it's not true yet.. The correction will reach the users once the language packs have been updated, which will happen in a few weeks.
