           Summary: typo: Hebrew weekdays too long and confusing
           Product: kontact
           Version: 1.2.4
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: kde-2 dotancohen com

Version:           1.2.4 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

In Hebrew, we call the weekdays "first day" (Sunday), "second day" (Monday), and so forth. They are often abbreviated with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. In Kontact, Sunday is translated as "יום א", Monday is "יום ב", and so forth. The redundant word "יום" (day) makes reading the weekday impossible unless the pane is very, very wide. I suggest that the word "יום" be removed from the translation, leaving "א" for Sunday, "ב" for Monday, and so forth. That way, the weekday could be seen while keeping the pane at a reasonable width. It is also consistent with printed calendars, which do not have the word "יום" printed on them.

תודה רבה (Thank you very much!)
