Description phrxmd 2021-05-04 03:49:00 UTC
In the German UI of Discover, "Featured" apps are translated as "Empfehlung" ("Recommendation"). This makes it seem like they are recommended to me specifically. As a result, when I open Discover, I find it confusing when it recommends me to install apps that I have already installed.

1. Open Discover
2. The featured apps pane opens by default.

The list of featured apps is presented as a list of apps that Discover recommends me for installation. These recommended apps include apps that I have already installed, so recommending them to me makes no sense.

Instead of "Empfehlung", I would expect something that does not carry the connotation of having been recommended for me specifically. Suggestions - "Ausgewählte Apps", "Besondere Apps", "Empfehlung des KDE-Teams"

I agree that "recommendation" in the context of package management is misleading here, since package manager use this term to give you packages that work together with the package you are trying to install.

Not sure about a proper translation here though. Maybe we can get some more opinions?

Also is might be good to know what "featured" apps are. Is this a random collection of apps? Or is it a curated list that changed regularly?

It is a "top picks"/"editor's choice" style curated list that was intended to be rotated somewhat regularly (see Bug 431316) but that never ended up happening. :(
Comment 3 Myriam Schweingruber 2021-05-06 09:27:35 UTC
How about "Vorschläge", "Vorgeschlagene Apps"?
Comment 4 Burkhard Lück 2021-05-06 13:26:57 UTC
+1 for "Vorgeschlagene Anwendungen"
