I'm afraid that may be a tall order. It will only work out of the box if the
file being imported actually uses the exact same translation as that of the
translator of the KMyMoney file. Unfortunately, what tends to be found is that
different financial institutions use different terms to describe their
transaction type, in fact sometimes changing within the same file.
This is the reason I allowed for alternative terms to be added to the parameter
list in the resource file. If the file being imported contains an unrecognised
type, the user will be informed and given the chance to substitute with the
standard KMyMoney transaction type. If this should happen more than the odd
time, the user may add that unrecognised type to the appropriate list in the
What I'm not sure about just now is whether, once the user has chosen to make a
substitution, that new term is added to the resource file automatically. It's
a few ears since I wrote that code.

I know no Polish financial terms. If the Buy list contains a correct Polish
term, then that I presume was added by the translator. A possible explanation
is that at line 161 (in my version) of investprocessing.cpp the following
appears - "m_buyList += i18nc("verb", "buy"); // some
basic entries in case rc file missing". It may be that that was when the
translation for Buy was added. However, the next line is similar for the Sell
operation, and that was not translated apparently.
I would suggest that you include both noun and verb versions for Sell in your

That does sound more understandable, although it would have to be added to
every transaction type.

Apologies for that. I'm extremely impressed by the general level of knowledge
of English shown by the users, and developers, and I forget myself sometimes
and lapse into the vernacular. "being in business" is used to indicate that a
problem has been solved and normal service may be resumed. I hope it didn't
So far as your suggested patch is concerned, I'm not sure of its purpose. The
Subject is "[PATCH] Read operation's type explicitly as QStringList", and in it
you add a number of QStringList definitions, which are already included in
investprocessing.h, c. line 164.
Oh, and just as a post script, I've added "in Polish" to the bug heading, as
the import operation is otherwise as expected.
