[isf-wifidog] Some stuff regarding translations

Hi all,

this is about some issues I came across while translating WiFiDog  
into german.

First I talked to Francois and Benoit about changing some code in  
WiFiDog, because some sentences need to be rearranged for a  
reasonable order of words.

The next thing I came across is the spelling of some words. For  
example we spell the word HotSpot in this three ways: HotSpot,  
Hotspot and hotspot. We need to adjust such use of words. Therefor I  
will compile a list of words and post it on the list.

The next thing I'd like to discuss about is the use of the words  
HotSpot and node. I know that a HotSpot could(!) consist of more than  
one node. But I think we should decide to only use either the word  
HotSpot or node. Especially in german the translation of the word  
node sounds just terrible.

I think there are going to be two types of wireless networks. Single  
nodes and a mesh network. In case it is a single node network I'd  
like to stick to the word HotSpot, because the common visitor of a  
HotSpot knows the meaning of it. Only in case of a mesh network the  
word node should be used.

So, I hope this is going to be decided soon.

Regards, Max!
