Built-in help for Ans - Printable Version +- HP Forums (https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum) +-- Forum: HP Calculators (and very old HP Computers) (/forum-3.html) +--- Forum: HP Prime (/forum-5.html) +--- Thread: Built-in help for Ans (/thread-7136.html) Built-in help for Ans - JMB - 10-31-2016 11:54 AM I think I have spotted a gramatical error in the translation from English to Spanish and French in the help for Ans. In English the help says: ... Ans(n) will attempt to substitute n for x (or the default variable)... This means in English that n will take the place of x (Ok) In Spanish the help says: ... Ans(n) tratará de sustituir n por x (o la variable predefinida) ... This means in Spanish that x will take the place of n (Wrong) It should be: ... Ans(n) tratará de sustituir x (o la variable predefinida) por n ... In French the help says: ... Ans(n) va tenter de substituer n pour x (ou pour la variable par défaut) ... This means in French that x will take the place of n (Wrong) It should be: ... Ans(n) va tenter de substituer x (ou la variable par défaut) pour n ... I don't know how other languages work regarding this concept, but I guess that the Portuguese translation is also wrong. Perhaps other users fluent in these languages can help in sorting this out.

RE: Built-in help for Ans - eried - 10-31-2016 09:54 PM In Spanish even your correction is wrong. You cannot say "se sustituir" it must say "de sustituir". RE: Built-in help for Ans - JMB - 11-01-2016 09:35 AM You're right eried. I have corrected my misspelling. Thanks!
