Description

The term "principal" is only used in very few places within the user interface and is not really defined elsewhere. In the translations, the term is only used in the field_principal key.

About the only place where I came across this was as a validation error when trying to add a new project member and not selecting a user or group. Here, the error message is:

Principal can't be blank

As the term "Principal" is very obscure here, I propose we generally replace it with "User or Group".

In the German translations, things are worse because the term is currently translated there as "Auftraggeber" which actually means "client" in a strict business sense. Here, "Benutzer oder Gruppe" would be more appropriate as a direct translation of "User or Group".

+1

The phrase "user or group" is already used in the label label_principal_search ("Search for user or group:"). Changing the translation for label_principal from "Principal" to "User or group" improves consistency and clarity.

+1 I'm also in favor for this proposal. It sounds way better.

Thank you Maeda-san.

With the attached patch (which is just an in-place edit of yours from #36938#note-3), I updated the German translation to "Benutzer oder Gruppe" as initially proposed. There are no other changes.
