Description

The descriptive text under the Parent Category section of the Category page describes an example that may not be as easily understood or translatable compared to more universally translated words.

Before: parent category "jazz" + child categories "bebop" and "big band".

After: parent category "music" + child categories "jazz" and "rock".

This ticket proposes changing the description to the "after" example.

Hi @joanrho, Welcome to Meta WordPress Trac! Thank you for your ticket.

In your patch you have just change parent and child categories name only and it's not improvement of any description.

Hi @mukesh27! Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback.

In this case, the text change is an improvement to the description because it clarifies the given example to one that is more universally understandable and translatable.

@joanrho i don't think text change is an improvement of any description but let's wait for core dev thought on this. why you need UI focuses as it not needed for this ticker so again i remove that.

@pento and I discussed this, and we think that changing the descriptions does help clarify the relationship between parent and child categories. We don't want to remove the reference to jazz, but folks unfamiliar with particular styles of jazz face an additional cognitive barrier when trying to figure a concept new users already find confusing.
