Help with English

Post by Pako » Sat Mar 15, 2008 5:27 pm

I have made some enhancement of my plugin MediaMonkey.
I need help.
I know, that my English is very poor and so I need advise,
as I have well write this texts:

Code: Select all

class LoadPlaylistByFilter(eg.ActionClass):
    name = "Load Playlist by Filter"
    description = "Loads a MediaMonkey playlist defined by filter (SQL query)."
    
    class text:
        radioboxMode = "Select songs ..."
        modeAnd = "Corresponding to all rules (AND)" 
        modeOr = "Corresponding to at least one rule (OR)" 
        equal = "is equal with"
        notEqual = "is not equal with"
        greater = "is greater than"
        greatOrEqual = "is greater or equal with"
        less = "is less than"
        lowerOrEqual = "is less or equal with"
        beforeLess = "was before under"         #RELATIVE TO 'NOW' MODE
        beforeMore = "was before more than"     #RELATIVE TO 'NOW' MODE
        startsWith = "starts with"
        notStartsWith = "not starts with"
        endsWith = "ends with"
        notEndsWith = "not ends with"
        includes = "includes"
        notIncludes = "not includes"
        isEmpty = "is empty"
        isNotEmpty = "is not empty"
        order1 = "Found songs sort in"
        asc = "ascending"
        desc = "descending"
        order2 = "order by:"
        limit1 = "Select only the first"
        limit2 = "entry"
        filterName = "Filter name:"
        found = "%s songs found"           #RESULT
        noFound = "no song found"          #RESULT
Please, help me !

Dear Pako,
Here is my proposal, maybe someone will give you more feedback. Hope the text is fitting in the window space.
Kind regards, Walter

Code: Select all

    class text:
        radioboxMode = "Select songs ..."
        modeAnd = "Matches all rules (AND)"
        modeOr = "Matches at least one rule (OR)"
        equal = "is corresponding with"
        notEqual = "is not corresponding with"
        greater = "is later then"
        greatOrEqual = "is later or corresponds with"
        less = "is earlier then"
        lowerOrEqual = "is earlier or corresponds with"
        beforeLess = "was earlier before"         #RELATIVE TO 'NOW' MODE
        beforeMore = "was later before"     #RELATIVE TO 'NOW' MODE
        startsWith = "starts with"
        notStartsWith = "starts without"
        endsWith = "ends with"
        notEndsWith = "ends without"
        includes = "includes"
        notIncludes = "excludes"
        isEmpty = "is empty"
        isNotEmpty = "is non-empty"
        order1 = "Songs found are sorted"
        asc = "ascending"
        desc = "descending"
        order2 = "order by:"
        limit1 = "Select only the first"
        limit2 = "entry"
        filterName = "Filter name:"
        found = "%s songs found"           #RESULT
        noFound = "no song found"          #RESULT

Thanks very much for your help !
This term is for me curious:

Code: Select all

order1 = "Songs found are sorted"
It is still command and not predication ?

Your English is better then my Czech! It appears it's also very good, these errors are what makes English so complicated and difficult to learn. Don't be fooled into thinking many write or speak perfect English.

However I am an American and I don't know proof positive which is correct or incorrect. However if I were to phrase it, it would be equal to rather then equal with.

So modifications made by me should be taken lightly.

Code: Select all

        class text:
        radioboxMode = "Select songs ..."
        modeAnd = "Matches all rules (AND)"
        modeOr = "Matches at least one rule (OR)"
        equal = "is equal to"
        notEqual = "is not equal to"
        greater = "is greater than"
        greatOrEqual = "is greater than or equal to"
        less = "is less than"
        lowerOrEqual = "is less than or equal to"
        beforeLess = "was before"         #RELATIVE TO 'NOW' MODE
        beforeMore = "was after"     #RELATIVE TO 'NOW' MODE
        startsWith = "starts with"
        notStartsWith = "does not start with"
        endsWith = "ends with"
        notEndsWith = "does not end with"
        includes = "includes"
        notIncludes = "excludes"
        isEmpty = "is empty"
        isNotEmpty = "is non-empty"
        order1 = "Songs found are sorted"
        asc = "ascending"
        desc = "descending"
        order2 = "order by:"
        limit1 = "Select only the first"
        limit2 = "entry"
        filterName = "Filter name:"
        found = "%s songs found"           #RESULT
        noFound = "no song found"          #RESULT
I do know for positive I have editied what I originally posted in this reply as much as I edited yours. :lol:

I'm the type of guy that if I can't do it well I'm not going to try and teach someone else. However I am always willing to help and you can feel free to bounce anything you like off of me. Just don't be suprised if I do it wrong, mispell it whatever.

(Crap another edit in that last two lines!! :oops: )
