Wrong translation of "signed" and "unsigned" in DDS file type

Recommended Posts

Hi! I suspect that there is a common translation mistake in a bunch of languages. I'm talking about "signed" and "unsigned" specification of DDS compression formats. For now it's translated as "Is this format signed or not by some person with his pen or pencil?". But I assume it should be translated as "Does this format have minus sign in front of numbers or not?". It's like signed and unsigned integers in programming languages. Here is the list of translations where I noticed this mistake:

  • Czech
  • Polish
  • Slovak
  • Russian
  • Ukrainian

Am I right about the correctness of the translation?

That is correct.

It is possible that those strings were auto-translated.

This is not an auto-translation in Russian and Ukrainian.

 

Thank you @pavlik1307 for the detected translation error. The bug will be fixed for future releases.

Yeah this almost certainly just a robo-translation mistake. I know because I did the translations :) (by which I mean I clicked through all the languages and either approved the suggested robo-translation, or used Google Translate to do it)
