Description Amir E. Aharoni 2012-11-01 11:59:37 UTC
The message "mobile-frontend-on" was used only for images in the past. It was also combined with "mobile-frontend-toggle-images". That's what the documentation said, too (actually, I wrote it, but it was true at the time). It was translated to other languages in a way that fits images, but not necessarily other things.

Now it is used for turning other options on and off, and this is grammatically incorrect for some languages. I can think of two solutions:

1. Clarify in the documentation that this message is for all options, and mark all the existing translations as FUZZY to notify the translators that they should consider updating them.
2. Create an on/off message for every option.

Maybe there are also other possible solutions.

Also, "mobile-frontend-toggle-images" can probably be removed completely.
