[[Wikimedia:Wikipedia-android-strings-preference title notification poll/en]] translation issue
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

I assume that even though there is a note in documentation to this unit that "this is about the polling of notifications, not about notifications of polls", the translations in some languages do mean "notifications about polls".

Polling is a computer term, but maybe there can be used an easier wording for translators and users to understand?

@Ata - Can you think of an easier word? We are using the technical term "polling" deliberately, because that is actually what the feature is doing.
