Ei käytössä suomeksi

The application I'm working on these days runs in 18 different languages.  Every so often we send the UI strings out to be translated.  Some of them have no direct equivalent in other languages, and some are the same in most (or all) languages.

One such string was flagged in the content we sent to the translation company as "No translation. Not used in Finnish".  Guess what we ended up with in the UI?

  2. Oh, please. How long have we all known not to concatenate LRs? If the developer (who should be soundly beaten) had used LANGUAGE_RESOURCES_BLAH_OF_BLAH, you would've been fine. Your string doesn't work in Chinese either, but less obviously to a non-Chinese reader...
