Because this discussion belogns to translations and not to the general
grass users list. =]

Good to know.

Partially clear.
However, I think clarity in the communication is more important, so I
prefer to be a bit more on the forml side, without being too rigid.
I want to be clear, but not boring. I think you can manage that in
your native language.

Overall, it is a question of style. Often is best to follow what other
translators have done in italian (not necessarily on grass, though).
