#12697 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Navigation menu admin doesn't allow for feminine form

The sidebar for /wp-admin/nav-menus.php uses the following code for its "Add..." metaboxes labels: "Add an Existing %s", where %s can be any form post_type.

This does not work for some languages other than English. For instance in French, while Article (Post) is masculine, Page and Catégorie are feminine, and therefore need specific wordings.

Guilty foreach loops are to be found in both wp_nav_menu_post_type_metaboxes() and wp_nav_menu_taxonomy_metaboxes().

So the $post_type->singular_label needs to change or are you suggesting the entire phase be changed all together? What would be more appropriate?

I think we need something like $pt->singular_label_add_new for both taxonomies and custom post types, which would default to sprintf( __( 'Add New %s', $pt->singular_label ) ).

We would probably need label_add_new as well, for Add New Posts (versus Add New Post). Not sure if we use the plural variant in core anywhere though. If that's the case, we could just go with add_new_label as being the singular form.

We've been keeping the i18n requirements in the back of our mind for a while now. Assigning for Nikolay for a full review.
