Summary0011463: Confusing message when selecting a project to enter an issue

Please have a look at this piece of strings_english.txt

# account_profile_manage_page.php
$s_edit_or_delete_profiles_title = 'Edit or Delete Profiles';
$s_edit_profile = 'Edit Profile';
$s_make_default = 'Make Default';
$s_delete_profile = 'Delete Profile';

The string $s_make_default is not only used in account_profile_manage_page.php but also at other places, for example in set_project.php
One time it is used in the context of profile, one time in the context of project.
For this reason there is a wrong German translation for this message in the latest version. (Translated as "Make Default Profile")
I fixed the German message in translatewiki, but seems that other languages are also affected (for example French)

I think there should be two separate strings (make_default_profile and make_default_project) or place this string at another place in the file to avoid further confusion

TagsNo tags attached.

well "make default" does not specify if the thing to be made default is a profile or a project

the translations mentioned may have been made only for the specific case (despite the text in make default) - oops

but providing separate strings might be helpful for both the translators (and yes translations) and general user, by being presented with the text indicating (or reassuring) the context

Perhaps "Set as default" would be better terminology?

Set as Default
Make Default

pretty much the same; though it seemed the issue was that the german translation was attempting to be more specific about what was being made default ... which did not work in all cases where the make default string appeared

So if the english is changed to 'set as default' and then the translation is changed to 'set as default profile', the same issue mentioned in this ticket would appear again when used on projects
