I'm not a real developer :-).
It is not hard to change the order of these settings. But please consider before:
- These settings are parallel on Style Manager and Text Properties dock panel > Orphans and Widows
- The German translation does not follow English exactly ("Don't separate first X lines" / "Don't separate last Y lines"), although its meaning is of course the same.

I think the current solution with original English labels is good.

If we decide to change the order of these controls, we should be change the original English labels to:
- Orphan control: X lines
- Window control: Y lines

Let’s see what the core developers think.

thanks for the answer.

you said
"If we decide to change the order of these controls, we should be change the original English labels to:

that´s fine for me, but I don´t use the english labels, so...
But nevertheless I would change them vice versa like:

- Widow control: Y lines
- Orphan control: X lines

so that the widow control is above the orphan controll. Because widows are the lines at the top of a site and orphans at the bottom. So in my opinion it would be a little more intuitive
