Summary0003516: Add "translation contributors" section to the About dialog.
DescriptionTranslating a program is not a fun thing to do and there are lots of strings in Doomseeker. Anyone who is willing to provide a translation should receive a special recognition place in the program. Let's add such place somewhere in the about dialog and mention each contributor.
Additional InformationSupport for translations and a Polish translation was added for 0.10 Beta with commit 643dd47d329139f30b3dff5c24b4108b9cae3a46.

Spanish translation was added for Doomseeker 1.2 with merge commit 16a6f23a4546df5926c1fd19220f5094d460f558 and subsequent commits.

Can this be targeting 1.3 due to "time" constraints? No offense to any major translation contributors.

Well, if we really are in a hurry, we can add a "- translations provided by Zalewa and Pol Marcet Sardà" just *after* the line "- Hyper_Eye, Nece228, Linda "WubTheCaptain" Lapinlampi, Pol Marcet Sardà". This would take me 2 minutes 😊
Sine right now there aren't too many translations, this would do the job.

I think that this solution is "okay enough".
If Zalewa tells me what he had in mind, I could try to do so.

I didn't have anything concrete in mind yet. I took several looks at the About dialog and tried to figure out how to fit this into the current layout or how could the layout be changed to avoid expanding the size of the dialog box. We have that scrolling box there that can accept as much text as we want, so I thought maybe it can be put there somewhere.

For now I think I can agree with Pol's suggestions that it will be sufficient to add a single line below the "Additional contributions" statement. I feel, however, that it should be clearly stated who is responsible for which translation.

Yeah, that's mainly why I think this solution is "okay enough"
I can simply state the translation between "()" just after every name.
"- translations provided by Zalewa (Polish) and Pol Marcet Sardà (Spanish)"
But pretty much with only one more translation, this would get too big to be handled by a label.

If we put it in the textbox, it could be added after "This program is distributed under the terms of the LGPL v2.1 or later."
and could get a more organized structure:

- Polish: Zalewa
- Spanish: Pol Marcet Sardà

(since it is possible that one translation is done by more than one person, I think this structure is the most adequate)

Sorry, I'm taking this issue back from resolved for review.

Quote from Zalewa
I like it.

I don't like it.

Right now it's just one translatable tr(). I imagine what happens if someone adds another contributor there, the whole thing gets untranslated instead of three seperate lines. Compare to icons attribution, for example.

This edit also seems quite out of place, and repeats some author names already listed in the about dialog. Hence I also personally oppose making any change at all; though I'd also like a mention in an AUTHORS file in the source distribution.

I'm saying: The approach to resolution here seems incorrect or rushed.

That translation string is going to look very odd out of context, but alright.
