Greetings,

This is a follow-up on my previous report about Workflow Automation. There has been some updates on workflow automation, and we still have awkward translations.

This is what we see in English version when we're working with a custom field with text type.

This is Korean version of the same page.

Out of the above 23 conditions, I found ten translation mistakes:

  1. starts with, 시작 문자
    In Korean, '시작 문자' means 'the first letter'.
  2. does not start with, 시작 문자 제외
    In Korean, '시작 문자 제외' means 'except the first letter'.
  3. ends with, 끝 문자
    In Korean, '끝 문자' means 'the last letter'.
  4. does not end with, 끝 문자 제외
    In Korean, '끝 문자 제외' means 'except the last letter'
  5. was not, 달랐음
    In Korean, 'was not' is closer to '(이)가 아니었음' while '달랐음' means 'was different'.
  6. contained, 포함
    In Korean '포함' is a noun for 'containment'.
  7. started with, 시작
    In Korean, '시작' is a noun for 'the beginning' or 'the start'.
  8. did not start with, 시작 문자 제외
    It is translated the same as the second item, even though it's in the past tense.
  9. ended with, 끝 문자
    It is translated the same as the third item, even though it's in the past tense.
  10. did not end with, 끝 문자 제외
    It is translated the same as the fourth item, even though it's in the past tense.

Hope this helps.
