      On the familie tab there is the option to re-order children.
      In the translation files it is Re-order children, but it is shown as Re-Order Children,every word with a capital.
      If you click the option, the page Re-order children is opened.(Just one capital). I thought the translation files were case sensitive?

      In the translation files there is also Re-order families, but I couldn’t find this line on the family tab or family page. Could be the same as re-order children.

      Re-order media has a line on the page with explanation:Click a row, then drag-and-drop to re-order media
      Maybe add this to the pages re-order children and re-order families?

      You do ask some interesting (but very good) questions 🙂

      The issue here is a cross-over between translations and css. The original text, used of translations, is “Re-order children” and “Re-order families”. But yes, translations do require exact matches (case sensitive, format sensitive, space sensitive, etc….)
      But there is a complication. In the past there has been an attempt to standardise words and phrases for two reasons:
      1 – not all languages / cultures use capitals in the same way
      2 – Some words and phrases are used in different places across the system. Sometimes at the start of a sentence, sometimes in the middle, sometimes stand-alone.

      So a decision was made (before kiwitrees, and without any opportunity for debate) to standardise (almost) entirely on lower case for labels. The result is often like this:

      In kiwitrees I have tried to compensate for that result by using the css “text-transform: capitalize;” function. I think it is an improvement, but happy to hear alternative views. It makes the same look like this:

      The main problem with css is that it is not possible to create “sentence case” (Re-order children) only full capitalisation of all words, or not.

      Re-order media has a line on the page with explanation:Click a row, then drag-and-drop to re-order media
      Maybe add this to the pages re-order children and re-order families?

      Agreed. Done. I have also done the same for the “Re-order families” option.
