Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-store

After much discussion with community members and others, sabdfl has determined that "Software Store" should become "Software Center" in US English. Note that this should be expressed as "Software Centre" in UK English. The package should be named "software-center".

I've pushed a patch for the help to lp:~mdke/software-store/help-fixes.

Localization note: it should be Software Centre in Canadian English, and probably every English derivate except EN-US

Confirmed that Canadian English (and probably other English localisations) should be spelt 'centre'.

Just clarifying... it should be Centre in en-GB too (but I guess you all knew that :p )

There's a small detail left for the transition, though it must be changed in ubiquity.

On the Ubiquity slideshow, "Software Store" is mentioned. I tested this with yesterday daily build of karmic.

Pablo, that's been fixed in bug 439960.

Not fixed for en_AU. Australian English should use ‘Centre’, but unfortunately I have to look at the obnoxious ‘Center’ whenever I open my Applications menu. ;)

(I already ‘translated’ it in Rosetta, but doesn’t look like it made it in.)

Jeremy - that sounds like a separate translation bug - possibly the translation was only done as a suggestion and not approved by the en_AU team, or it was made after the deadline at 00:00 on 22 October 2009 (ref: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KarmicReleaseSchedule). If the string has now been translated then no doubt it will be included in the first langpack update following release.

I'd suggest that you get in touch with the en_AU translation team here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AustralianTranslationTeam
