Can some of the developers shed some light in this terminology?

The word "inverse" is not clear in the context for translators.

The file is svtools/source/dialogs/so3res.src :

        < "The connection name has no inverse." ;

> The connection name has no entry in a DNS table.
> The connection name cannot be resolved.
