German term or phrase: Kurse bearbeiten
Hi everyone,

I want to verify the translation for the UI string 'Kurse bearbeiten'. There are two different translations for this string in the TM:

Edit rates
Edit prices

The first translation has no additional contextual information, though I suspect it might be a dialog name. The second translation would appear to be a button label given the context in which it appears in the TM.

Could someone please confirm whether or not both of these translations are in fact UI strings, and provide some additional information as to the context in which each translation should be used?

Thanks!

Linda

Explanation:
I don't think that the question of what elements these refer to are at all relevant. The point, surely, is that 'Kurse' can refer to both prices *and* rates:

prices, if these are the quoted prices for e.g. equities, bonds, funds, or commodities

rates, if these relate to (foreign currency) exchange rates. They could also theoretically relate to interest rates.

You therefore have to decide, based on the precise context, if Kurse here means 'prices' or 'rates'. If you don't know, you'll have to use 'prices/rates'.

I really don't know if there's much more anybody could say about this...
