Kleopatra - A translation error in Chinese language
Closed, InvalidPublic


While trying to decrypt a PGP file, it will fail if there is no integrity protection. But there is an option to perform the 'Force decryption'.
It's fine in the English version. But the Chinese translation is '强制加密', which means 'Force encryption'. It actually means the exact opposite.
The correct translation should be '强制解密'.
