I think, you misunderstood me: I was not scared about its content, but
the amount of links Yifan offered to me ... ;)

Somehow ... Yes :) But I was missing a more extended explanation for
translators ... :( Such things like ...

1. I have found in most test cases the beginning "In German", but when I
looked at the inactive Base test cases (why are they inactive, btw.?), I
found a different structure with a "[de]" in front of the segment. Is
this a relic from the OOo-TCM? And would it not be better to use this
structure? And I seem to remember (from the ToDo list, I think ... ;) )
that an import of old test cases is planned. What is the status here?
Are translations of them are imported as well?

2. How do I get my translated test cases in a test run? A short test
during my translation shows me, that they were not in there ... :( Or
does someone have to prove them first and then they get active?

... And maybe some more, which I forgot ... ;)

Yes please :)
Have a nice day

A place for everything and everything in its place.
