Summary0012055: "Back to previous version" label should rather be "Back to saved version" or "Restore from saved version"
DescriptionIn french the nowaday label is "Revenir à la version précédente".
"version précédente" is quite ambiguous.
What previous version ?
Is it about undoing ?
"Revenir à la version sauvegardée" would be explicit and more clear as what version is it.

Hello!
I have a suggestion for this issue.
In LibreOffice under File there are 2 options: "Reload" and "Versions"
Pressing "Reload" the document is restored to the latest saved version and from "Versions" you can save/compare/open/delete previous versions of the same file (everything saved in the same .odt file). It's a clever solution we could take as example, but it might be quite difficult to implement this kind of feature.

In inkscape in french its "Recharger"

BESIDE, The dialog that pops up when choosing this option says :
"Les changements dans votre document n'ont pas été enregistrés et vous souhaitez revenir à la version enregistrée.
Souhaitez-vous continuer ?"

"Souhaitez vous continuer" n'est pas très clair, puisque l'action en question consiste justement à arrêter de continuer le travail pour revenir à une version précédente.
(EN : its not clear because "continue" means here "go on with action", that is "stop work and restore", which is the contrary of "continue the editing". Proposing to "continue to stop" can be felt as ambiguous and should be avoided)

It would be better to change the text to :

"Les changements dans votre document n'ont pas été enregistrés. En revenant à la version enregistrée, vous allez donc perdre vos modifications récentes.
Souhaitez-vous vraiment revenir à la version enregistrée ?"
Avec un tel libellé, il n'y a pas d'ambiguité.

EN. Change text to something like : "Some changes have not been recorded. Restoring recorded version will discard all recent edits. Do you really want to restore recorded version ?"
Such a text is not paradoxal and not ambiguous.

This would seem to be a translation issue only. The code is:
(*scrActions)["fileRevert"]->setTexts( tr("Re&vert to Saved"));

Revert to Saved seems fine to me.

"Revert to saved" is very fine.
In french, it would be "Revenir à la sauvegarde".

Note that there is also a usability issue with the confirm dialog that pops afterward choosing that action : its text is not clear because "continue" means here "go on with action", that is "stop work and restore", which is the contrary of "continue the editing". Proposing to "continue to stop" is ambiguous and should be avoided. A better text would be "Some changes have not been recorded. Reverting to the saved version will discard all recent edits. Do you really want to restore recorded version ?". This new text is not paradoxal and not ambiguous.
