English to Swedish translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Computers (general) / display string
English term or phrase:disk full
I would like to know what the display shows on localized Swedish Windows or Mac when you try to save a file and the disk is full.
Thank you very much. You both deserve the 4 points because both answers are correct - one for one system and the other for the other system, but I don't know how to split the point in Proz.com 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: Hi! Your question has two answers: one for Mac OS, and another for Windows!
Since I've been working as a translator for Apple for two years, one of the main principles when localizing the OS is to uphold a terminology distinct from Microsoft. If possible, we would make sure that error messages etc. always differ a little from the Windows equivalent.
The asker has declined this answer Comment: This was correct and this is only a formal action.
Thank you very much. Next time I will ask the question for one system only. I just don't know how to split the point.
