If "Live TV" is the live streamed regular channels it should be "Kanaler" as in channels. That would make "Currently playing" special live broadcasts and not channels and then "Livesändningar" is correct.
Episodes = Avsnitt
Full list = Alla program
All the others are correct.

SVTPlay is using "Program" and not "Programmen".

msgstr "Program" <-- This is what they use on SVTPlay.

msgctxt "#30353"
msgid "Currently Playing"

@Sopor because I added translations for all these folders and they will be the same for all channels. This was one of the things I discussed with Team Kodi while getting it into the repository. There is not discussion about this.

So regarding these translations: forget SVT Play and look at it from a larger perspective: even the Dutch channels will show "Senaste program" for the most recent shows.

Besides the language it should all work now: retrospect-patch-20190908.170825.zip

@basrieter From checking TV4 and SVT out, 30353 "Livesändningar" are streams that are broadcasted online. They can be showing on the "live TV" at the same time, but it can also be exclusive for the web, and as you say it also lists future streams. "Currently Playing" sounds wrong to me to use for that, and as such "Visas just nu" (Shown right now) might not be the best.

"Mest visade program" will be wrong because the string is about episodes, and sometimes several episodes of one program will be in the list. But using episodes in that context sounds corny to me in Swedish. My solution: Just use "Mest visade". This goes for "Senaste avsnitten" too, make it "Senaste".

I agree with @Sopor on "Program(men)".

30357 Live Radio: Do you have plans to make Swedish radio available? A "catchup" service for radio too? If so, distinguishing between "Live Radio"/"Direktsänd radio" and "Radio"/Radio (the catchup) is a must. If no Swedish stations are planned, just use "Radio".

What's the difference between msgctxt "#30363" msgid "Popular" and "#30354"msgid "Most viewed episodes"?

Popular is what is being watched mostly at that moment in time. most viewed are those that have been watched over a longer period of time.

@zynexiz Yeah, I was too quick when reading your comment, but I did actually miss to translate that string. :)

30353 "Currently Playing/Livesändningar" is what you can find in Retrospect for SVT Play and TV4 under "Livesändningar". It corresponds to these pages: SVT and TV4. Notice that "Livesändningar" is what TV4 uses and I think that term is better than SVT's "Direktsändningar". Since both channels list coming broadcasts, "Visas just nu (Currently Playing)" wouldn't be good. (And if it is the same for other, non-Swedish channels, it's not good for them either.)

30356 "Live TV/Kanaler" is what you can find in Retrospect for SVT Play under ".:Kanaler:.". No other Swedish channel has Live TV (for free). @basrieter Correct me if I'm wrong. Otherwise I still suggest my "Final?" above. Thoughts @zynexiz @Sopor @teug ?

commented Sep 10, 2019

@Snaah I'm a bit conflicted. They are both correct in their way, but you are right that currently playing indicates that it's playing right now (which is not always the case). It can also be upcoming broadcasts. Direktsändningar and Livesändningar is the same thing, but "Direktsändningar" is more correct in Swedish (if you google it, it has twice as many results). So my suggestion is this;

msgctxt "#30351"
msgid "Categories"
msgstr "Kategorier"

msgctxt "#30352"
msgid "TV Shows"
msgstr "TV-program"

msgctxt "#30353"
msgid "Currently Playing"
msgstr "Direktsändningar"

msgctxt "#30354"
msgid` "Most viewed episodes"
msgstr "Mest sedda avsnitt" (added "avsnitt" to your suggestion)

msgctxt "#30355"
msgid "Most recent episodes"
msgstr "Senaste avsnitt" (added "avsnitt" to your suggestion)

msgctxt "#30356"
msgid "Live TV"
msgstr "TV-kanaler" (instead of just Kanaler, alternative Live-TV)

msgctxt "#30357"
msgid "Live Radio"
msgstr "Radio"

msgctxt "#30358"
msgid "Episodes"
msgstr "Avsnitt"

msgctxt "#30359"
msgid "Genres"
msgstr "Genrer"

msgctxt "#30360"
msgid "Full list"
msgstr "Alla program"

msgctxt "#30361"
msgid "Tags"
msgstr "Taggar"

msgctxt "#30362"
msgid "Last chance"
msgstr "Sista chansen"

msgctxt "#30363"
msgid "Popular"
msgstr "Populära"

How does that sound?

@zynexiz The reason you get more hits for "direktsändning(ar)" is because this word has been used since the 1940s, while "livesändning(ar)" is a word of the 2000s. I think "livesändningar" is better because of how "direktsändning" is and has been used. Direktsänd radio or TV commonly refers to TV or Radio channels continuously broadcasting, ie not how SVT has begun using it for SVT Play. In that sense, I find "livesändningar" less confusing.

To add "TV" is not really necessary, as there is no confusion about what type of channels it is.

For why I suggest "avsnitt" to be removed, see my previous comment.

@basrieter Don't want to sound too egocentrical as I suggest to PR my suggestion. If you do that and it's ok with you, we can continue the discussion here after you close the issue to come to a final decision. Then someone can make a PR with it.

commented Sep 10, 2019

@Snaah As I said, they both mean the same thing, but "direktsändning" is more commonly used and sounds better (but that's just my opinion). The definition of direktsändning is "radio or television broadcast that reproduces events at the same time as they occur" according to SO (Svensk Ordbok). I got confused lots of times by "Livesändningar", and thought it was the same as Live TV :)

I don't agree. The English translation for "most recent episodes" is "Senaste avsnitt". The translation for "Senaste" is just "Recent", so it is a more correct translation. Nothing corny about it :)

My thought about adding TV to "TV-kanaler" is because you also have Live Radio. This way you see that it's the Live TV part, not radio channels.

This is my thoughts about the translation, it's up to @basrieter to choose :)

These translations are totally wrong IMO, but i will give up. I still vote for keeping them in Swedish and not translate them at all. I run my Kodi in English but i want my Swedish channels use Swedish and it should also use the words and sentence that the site use and not the same on every site. If i go to SVT and i try to find Direktsändningar in Retrospect i have to find them in Currently Playing that is not the same thing.

@zynexiz Slack is a nice place otherwise! :) I'm a language nerd, so I find these discussions good. Glad you joined in.

@Sopor If I understand you correctly, you want each channel to use the vocabulary that are used on its website, no matter the language set in Kodi, right? For instance "Direktsändningar" for SVT Play and "Livesändningar" for TV 4?

@basrieter If I understand you correctly, Retrospect will have one set of strings to use for all channels (really all, no matter what country), and only those strings will be translated. In other words, no special strings for individual channels. Then what I describe above as what I think Sopor wants is not going to happen?

I can understand it would be hell of a lot of strings-files to administer to have one for each channel. I would love to have it like you want, Sopor, but I can see one set of strings for each language being less of a hassle for that guy in the Netherlands. :) Bas, I understood you on wanting the PR to go. Good choice! We'll see what we think of the strings live in Retrospect. As always, thanks for your incredible work!

And for you all to sleep well, Snah is going to tell you of a visionary Retrospect, where you can choose to customize your own strings! I would call "TV-program" "pågram" and Retrospect would be renamed to Snahtrospect. :D

One of the other reasons is that currently strings are too much hardcoded, so I need to move the into .PO files. That is what I discussed with the Kodi Team. For me, it made more sense to create generic terms and translations for commonly use text.

I always listen to "Språket i P1", if you like languages and live in Sweden I guess you know about that radio show :) Maybe "direktsändning" and "livesändning" is something for them to sink their teeth in :)

@basrieter Totally understandable and probably the optimal solution in this context. It would perhaps be different if it were for a commercial product, with lots of hired programmers and text editors.

@zynexiz Yeah, I'm now questioning my view of "direktsändning". Maybe the meaning has gradually changed with online TV? Yes, I know "Språket i P1"! Would definitely be cool to hear what they say. Honestly, I don't think using "live" (or "play" as in "playkanaler" for that matter!) is very good in general. Typical anglicisms. We got to protect our beautiful mother tongue! :) First I was surprised SAOL doesn't list live as lajv, which would be a "Swedification" of the anglicism in the veins of mail/mejl, but then I figured "lajv" means "IRL roleplaying". Wonder if situations like this are what the hours of Svenska Akademien's session are dealing with.
