"Back to {taxonomy}" should be a taxonomy label

On the term editing screen, a link with the phrase ← Back to {taxonomy} is displayed after a term has been updated. This text should be moved into a taxonomy label so that more accurate translations can be provided for each taxonomy.

Hey @johnbillion so looks like from that line of code it's already pulling the text from a term label.

Are you suggesting the entire line 'Back to {taxonomy} should be entirely replaced with a label? So that the text 'Back to' can also be defined in a label?

Yep that's right, the complete string should be a taxonomy label.

I'm not sure this string should be added to taxonomy labels. If any, we should change the taxonomy update message to match the post update message.

I agree with @johnbillion that it should be a taxonomy label.

We tend to avoid post type or taxonomy names in generic strings due to i18n concerns, see ticket:17609:3 and ticket:19099:1. Back to %s is a bad example and exactly the kind of string we'd like to avoid :)

In Russian, we currently have to translate it as an equivalent of Back to "%s" screen instead of using proper declensions.

In 41618:

Taxonomy: Introduce a back_to_items taxonomy label.

This is used after updating a taxonomy term in the link to return to the term listing screen.
