Actually, the language file has a perfectly acceptable usage of English.  But if you want to be exact, the technically correct words would not be 'file uploads section', but 'files upload section'.

It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here

My first language isn't english, and I'm happy if the dev team people correct my horrible grammar and spelling, but as far as I know the word password is spelled in lower case if it is not at the very start of a sentence. As your native language isn't English as well I suggest we leave this grammar and spelling discussion to the experts who have English as their first language.

The word password is in brackets.
Brackets means that user must look at some button or URL or etc.
That is my the text must look the same as on button.
So for "is spelled in lower case if it is not at the very start of a sentence" you are right.
But in our case it is in brackets.

"What it does" is grammatically correct IMO, since I believe "it" refers to "(util.mod)" which is singular, and not "utilities".

@Makc666: it seems you didn't understand the message I posted in my previous posting, so I have to say this more directly: please stop posting language file things that are cosmetical, leave it to those who speak English as their mother tongue.

Let's instead see contributions that show us something new: why don't you post actual hacks, themes etc.?

I'll lock this thread now. Please don't start another one along the same lines. Thank you.
