Bug Description

The dash does not support hyphenation of long application names. There were already some bugs complaining at least partially about this, see bug #1015446, bug #900722 and its follow up bug #900722. The latter proposes:

2b) Alternatively consult a hyphenation/grammar lib for the language in question. I don't think this is a good solutions as it would add a potentially large dependency for Unity, and may not include the necessary hyphenation rules anyway, and finally may not make the nicest break point even though it follows the rules (E.g. the Danish Internetprogrammer could grammatically be broken at "Internetprogram-mer" but for a "head line" type string such as this, it would be nicer to break it in between the two words it consist of i.e. "Internet-programmer").

What do you think about using a hyphenation library in unity? The screenshots from mentioned bugs look quite ugly, I think something needs to be done.

That bug is about desktop file names, this is about (localized) values of the Name key in the desktop files.
