I translated some stuff to german, and i found the name for “clean water” wrong.
The current translation is “Klares Wasser” what means to me that the water is “clear”. Like theres nothing floating in it.
I think “Sauberes Wasser” would fit better, because water must not be clear, but safe to drink.
Clear water with nothing floating in it can still be very unsafe to drink!
Problem is, i cant change the name in Transifex, i guess because the term “Klares Wasser” is reviewed.
While I agree with you that clear does not have to mean clean, it also seems a bit off to call it “Sauberes Wasser”.
While the translation would be correct in itself, “Ich geh’ mal eben in’n Aldi und hol’ sauberes Wasser.” just reads weird.
I guess the term “Klares Wasser” was used with spring water in mind (where this term often finds its use), which usually is clear and probably safe to drink.
How about “Trinkwasser”, “drinking water”?
Yeah, looks like once reviewed it can’t be changed anymore by normal translaters - only users with reviewer status or higher are able to change them;
I send a messag per Transifex to a guy named Wuzzy, how has reviewed many translations in the german branch.
I gave him the link to this thread here, maybe he will do something about the problem…
Thanks to @fallstern for the compliment, i’m a little perfecionist
