Description

Problem

In all catalogs these two specific strings:

Support:
Web support:

They maybe needs a single extra space at the end of their ":"

Analysis

To give a pratical example actually in the "Info" area of MUI the string "Support" is presented as is:

"Support:http://muidev.net"

However it will be better to show it as:

"Support: http://muidev.net"

(without the "" of course but with a space in between)

I can of course add manually a simple space directly in my translation, however it could be better if you can add an automatic space when needed so all languages can benefit from it

In 4835:

  • Aboutpage.c: added a label consisting of a single space character only between the "Support:" and the URL string to avoid having to insert artificial spaces in the translation. This closes #228.

Just a final note. I usually treat trailing spaces in the translations as "typos" and remove them if possible, because in general there is no need to add artifical spaces at the end of a string.
