Re: Bug#886672: [ddtp] aeolus - german localization

the easy thing first. I'll write a mail when the description has changed.
i think that there is a problem with the Englisch description too. It seems
to be copied verbatim from . "synthesized … emulator" sounds weird to me.
And I wonder how important the hardware restrictions are nowadays.
Somebody commented on the web interface to the best translation:
(umlaeute) i still doubt that "eine Stimme geben" is the best
for "to voice", as the latter appears to be a terminus technicus in the
context of organs (though i do not know the correct English translation;
a quick web search indicates that the correct translation would be
Wikipedia  says yes to "intonieren" and there even is an English
translation  for intonieren (to intone). The Google translation is
Intonation as tone color and volume balance
Especially in keyboard instruments, where there is a separate tone
generator (usually strings or whistles) for each tone, intonation means
the equalization of volume and tone of the tone generators.
I suggest to explain intonise and reword short description and first
paragraph of the description to make it better understandable for
synthesiser for emulating pipe organs
Aeolus is a pipe organ emulator that should be good enough to make an
organist enjoy playing it. It is a software synthesiser optimised for
this job, with possibly hundreds of controls for each stop, that enable
the user to intonate his instrument, i.e. equalize volume and tone
Description: Synthesised pipe organ emulator
Aeolus is a synthesised (i.e. not sampled) pipe organ emulator that
should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it. It is a
software synthesiser optimised for this job, with possibly hundreds
of controls for each stop, that enable the user to "voice" his
Main features of the default instrument: three manuals and one pedal,
five different temperaments, variable tuning, MIDI control of course,
stereo, surround or Ambisonics output, flexible audio controls
including a large church reverb.
Aeolus is not very CPU-hungry, and should run without problems on a
e.g. a 1GHz, 256Mb machine.
