Ambiguous Expression in German Locale

Recommended Posts

I conisder it as low priority, but the current expression for "Paint.NET Search" is "Paint.NET Suchen". I think that's a mistake. It sounds like "Search FOR Paint.NET" in English. In my opinion, the correct German phrase is "Paint.NET-Suche" (like Live Seach -> Live-Suche; Google Search -> Google-Suche).

In it's current form it may confuse users (for example: "I have Paint.NET, why should I search for it?"), "Paint.NET-Suche" however makes clear that the link leads you to a search ENGINE.
