Re: DocsProject common entities -- problem with translations?



I guess won´t be hard for a translator to fit that in a phrase
accordingly, like &FC-in, &FC-së, &FC-it (examples from sq), assuming
tha we are not allowed to spell Fedora differently when a language
requires it (again example from sq: Fedora, Fedoran, Fedoras,).
