Lintian Reports

W translated-default-field

All reports of translated-default-field for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

You should not mark as translatable "Default:" or "DefaultChoice:" fields, unless explicitly needed (e.g. default country, default language, etc.). If this Default field really should be translated, you should explain translators how they should translate it by using comments or brackets. For example:

      # Translators: Default language name, but not translated
      _Default: English


      _Default: English[ Default language name, but not translated]

Note that in the first case, Lintian ignores the comment unless it explicitly references translators and it is appears directly before the field in question.

Refer to the po-debconf(7) manual page and for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible
