Hello Hoang,
And welcome to Blender.
Unfortunately this is for bug reporting, not issues with usage.
But let me lead you in the right direction.
There are many users who use this software excellently and know it well.
They are also helpful in helping others use Blender.
I encourage you to visit https://blenderartists.org/forum/
and join the forum there.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) Screen: http://www.wordreference.com/ said that "projection" is a synonyms for screen, so in English is not so wrong. ;) In Italian, Adobe translate with a word that sound like "reduce color fading to white", "un-color" or "de-color" (scolora). I will use adobe's way because I think Gimp have to reference to Photoshop (and be friendly to photoshop users), and the next step is that gimp have to be the reference for 2D raster graphic stuff. But other ideas/criteria are welcome. :)

Chau (BlenderNavi) added a comment to T43295: Translation disambiguation requests.

@blend-it (blend-it) I need specific examples (both in PO and UI, with meaning of the different translations for same English word) to handle it correctly. ;)

@Chau (BlenderNavi) Don’t think we need more detail in context here, context is primarily for gettext disambiguation, helping translators is only a secondary goal for them. Also, the :src: comment tells you more than what you may think: since it’s bpy.types, you know that this is data, not action (which would be an operator, bpy.ops..... Further more, the final formating (bpy.types.class.prop_name:'VALUE') tells you that you are dealing with a specific option/value of an Enum property here (the type of a Sequence, i.e. strip).

Indeed, you need to understand a bit of Blender’s internals (at least on its py API level) to sort some cases (or just use the try-and-fix approach), but we really cannot add more complexity to our i18n handling code-wise just to make translators’ life easier, code has to remain reasonably simple and efficient here. ;)

Сергей Яничкин (mingun) added a comment to T43295: Translation disambiguation requests.

Another ambiguous word is "Both". Currently in Russian translation it translated as "Везде" (which means "everywhere" in English), which is totally wrong in some cases. For example, case :src: bpy.types.CyclesMaterialSettings.displacement_method:'BOTH' would be translated as "Оба" (which means "one and another" in English). In this case, it is preferable, of course, to change the names in the interface to something like "True displacement", "Bump mapping" and "True displacement + Bump mapping", but in others - it will be "Оба" / "Обе" (note for different - masculine vs feminine).

#. :src: bpy.types.FluidFluidSettings.volume_initialization:'BOTH'

msgid "Both"
msgstr "Везде"

Another word - "Tangent", which translated to Russian as "Тангенс" and implies mathematical function tan (:src: bpy.types.FModifierFunctionGenerator.function_type:'TAN'). But in most other cases, like :src: bpy.types.BakeSettings.normal_space:'TANGENT', :src: bpy.types.LineStyleAlphaModifier_AlongStroke.type:'TANGENT' and others it is meant "kind of space" and should be translated as "Касательное" or "Касательные" (this is two different meanings in Russian!)

Bastien Montagne (mont29) added a comment to T43295: Translation disambiguation requests.

Regarding screen, I find it a bit funny to use that word and english, and then use 'superposition' in french or whatever… It’s not even correct, actually (maybe “projection” would be better, but doubt there is a perfect wording for that). So will keep “écran” in french as well, also have the plus side of being direct translation of english, and being also used in Gimp & co, reduces confusion imho…

Are you ready for the manual? :-)
Here you can find the PO files to be translated: you can download, translate the strings, and upload here (better if in a periodical, cumulative .zip file).
I already partially worked on Glossary, terms (to reflect the UI), but definitions have to be translated.
