Bridge: rename "wrong value" into "incorrect value"
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

In the Wikidata Bridge, we're currently using "wrong value" to describe a value that needs to be fixed (in the sense of: edit the existing value, as opposed to update the value, that would create a new one and update the rank).

However, based on feedback from a native English speaker (confirmed by Adam) the word "wrong" seems to carry a too strong moral meaning, and "incorrect" should be preferred. We should rephrase our messages accordingly.

  • Check all the places in the interface where we use "wrong"
  • Rename into "incorrect", adapt the sentence if necessary

@Charlie_WMDE Are you OK with that change? Could you make some suggestion for the sentence where "incorrect" would appear two times?

Lydia said "let's do this" and took note to look into the topic of re-wording this label's description with respect to disputed values.

Subtle adjustment to the requested action:

Replace “a wrong” with “an incorrect”. Thanks.
