Summary says it all.

This is a problem for the spanish, portugese, russian and turkish translations where the "client arguments:" string is too long to display before the input field. The french and dutch translations shows all characters of the label, but the left margin is probably a bit lower than what it should be.

The string translates as follow, sorted by string length.

sv: "Argument:"
de: "Client-Parameter"
en: "Client arguments:"
nl: "Client argumenten"
fr: "Arguments client :"
ru: "Аргументы клиента:"
tr: "İstemci argümanları:"
pt: "Argumentos do cliente:"
es: "Argumentos del cliente:"

I'm actually not sure what the best solution to this is. We could either:

 1) change the UI to make the labels wider/go above the input field
 2) tell the translators to produce shorter strings.
 3) shorten the string to translate.

I think I need some input before proceeding. Gah!

According to the Wyse admin manual:

Note that currently only English is supported.
Additional language packs can be downloaded as they become available
from Wyse at: www.wyse.com/download.

However, www.wyse.com/download gives a 404. Are you surprised? I'm not. I've also checked the download center, but cannot even find our Z90 terminal in the list.

Thus, I think we can assume that only english is supported at this point, or that it's at least very difficult to get additional languages. However, I was able to test the GUI on my workstation by unpacking the RPM, loop back mounting the squashfs, and then running:

/mnt/opt/thinlinc/bin/tlclient --mode wyseconfig

Looks good, and there's plenty of space around every string.
