GUI Editor Search & Replace "Search [in] selection" checkbox is always
disabled, even if some text is selected

GUI File Browser "Show/Set octave directory" is always disabled

GUI Preferences should resize automatically to fit contents
(translated texts are more verbose and are being truncated)

Find File window button focus should be on Search not Browse
(so that hitting Enter at the "Named:" field runs the search.)

GUI Preferences Editor Styles keywords are not internationalized
(keywords such as "Default", "Comment", "Command", etc.)

GUI Preferences Editor Styles b,i,u (for bold, italic, underline) need some
context comments in the source code for helping the translators

similar context comments for tr ("Create file in\n"), about the newline

Other strings lacking internationalization:
"%d match"
"%d matches"
"New File.txt"
"New Directory"
"Find and Replace" (only one of its instances)
"Connecting to the web to display the latest Octave Community news has been

Some uncontroversial modifications for the original texts in English --

the translators:
Save File &As > Save File &As...
Print > Print...
Save Workspace As > Save Workspace As...

Goto current octave directory > Go to current Octave directory

Some possibly controversial modifications:
emacs > emacs +%l %f
&New File > &New Script
Enter the filename expression > Enter the filename search expression
Named: > Filename:
Start in: > Start directory:
Recurse directories > Search in sub-directories
Include directories > Include directory names
Search must match text > Enter the file content search expression
View the variables in the active workspace. > View the variables in the
storage class > category
The associated file editor tab has disappeared.  It was likely closed by some
means. > The associated file editor tab has disappeared.
The configuration file is stored in %1.  If that file exists, you will not see
this dialog when Octave starts. > The configuration file is stored in %1.

rename "Script" [in the toolbar, not in the menu] to "New Script"

In the File Browser, rename "Search diretory" to "Set directory" (that's what
it actually does)
also replace its icon, from a magnifying glass to a folder icon.
then use the magnifying glass for the Find Files
