[TUX] Translation of "V Proofread" does not fit button on 1024px wide screen if it's only a few characters wider
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Screenshot of what happens with longer strings

If the translation of "Proofread" is 4 characters wider than the English version, it will no longer fit the currently assigned space. That's not great. For these short strings, a translation must be allowed to be up to 50% wider than the source text. So in this case, at least "12Proofread34" should fit.

See screenshot.
