Active vs. passive

Please watch your usage of active vs. passive. In English documentation, it is quite common to directly address users. Doing so in German doesn't exactly help to create an air of respectability -- it's not "seriös". Specific instructions on how to achieve a certain task are an exception. In that case, not addressing the user can sound like a drill instructor.

You can use this module to get an overview of the available items. ?????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????
To adjust the access rights, choose the Web>Page module in the left navigation and the "News Storage" sysfolder in the page tree. Then click the "Edit" icon of the "Dummy news" item, and select the desired group under "Access". Click "Save and close". ???????????? ?????????????


For commands, e.g., menu items, always use the order

  <subject> <object> <action>

Otherwise it will sound like you are talking to your computer.

Copy file to folder ?????????????? ?????????????
Paste clipboard content ?????????????????? ?????????????


For messages by the system, e.g., confirmation, error, and success messages, always use a passive construction. The computer is not a person and thus cannot talk to the user. Also, the user should not be addressed directly (see above).

There is one exception: If the user has to be addressed because of properties or circumstances that are specific to the user.

Messages should be short and to the point.
