Hi all

 

I think the use of "Transform" in Word (App, Online and both US/UK and Danish) is kind of misleading since most Office user are getting used to the Get & Transform meaning from Excel (instead of Power Query).

 

I suggest Convert (Konvertér) and of course the commands in the pane should be corrected as well.

 

The Danish text "Konvertere dokumentet til en interaktiv, let at dele Microsoft Sway web-side, der ser flot ud på enhver enhed" is both wrong and muddy.

 

Just taking care of the errors it should either be "Konverterer dokumentet til en interaktiv, let at dele Microsoft Sway-webside, der ser flot ud på enhver enhed" or ""Konvertér dokumentet til en interaktiv, let at dele Microsoft Sway-webside, der ser flot ud på enhver enhed" (first one is the Danish edition of "Converts", the later on of "Convert" since I don't have the original text).

 

A better localization could be "Konverterer dokumentet til en interaktiv Microsoft Sway-webside, der både er nem at dele og ser flot ud på enhver enhed" or "Konvertér dokumentet til en interaktiv Microsoft Sway-webside, der både er nem at dele og ser flot ud på enhver enhed"

Hi @Jørgen Koch 

Our Danish moderator will take a look at your suggestion. It would be a global change so I am sure we may need to include C & AI ( @Evelyn Kim) in any discussion here. Thanks for the suggestion!
