This keeps coming up. We need a person who works with May on the Style guide and UI Standardization to think carefully about the language we use in UI, and the implications of internationalization of that copy.
Currently, these decisions are left to individual designers and PMs, and different decisions are made with different products. To have a unified experience, we should have a person or team to make these decisions. This way designers and PMs can refer to the person who is in charge of these decisions instead of making the decisions in isolation of their own projects.
That is a great idea. Communications doesn't really have the capacity at the moment, but it is really important to us to keep this unified with our voice. Thanks for adding me to the task!
