Hmm, yeah that's a tough one. I think I originally used very short words to try and avoid this issue, but it's certainly an issue if the translation cannot be short. This may be Qt's automatic behavior kicking in since it needs to make the widgets fit into the geometry. Would it be possible to use shorter terms to help workaround the issue?

I can double-check to make sure that we're not setting some property that allows it to get truncated. There may be a way to make Qt show the full string.

It is not possible to make the translation shorter without sacrificing UX. Directly translate git commands name(push/fetch/pull...) to other language is not better then leaving them untranslated.

I experimented with a few things but couldn't find a way to make Qt not truncate the text. Nonetheless, we can do better so we'll now include a tooltip so that you can hover over the button and see the full text.
