sounds like a good idea, but that's a programming task
which is probably best left to those who created the Options Form.

you do very well, but documentation in English should be well-written.
`the' & `is' are among the first words anglophones learn,
but they must present real difficulties for anyone
whose first language doesn't contain their equivalents:
i remember trying to get a handle on `ests/sests' & `zakryvats/zakryts'
when i learned some Russian many years ago: English has nothing similar;
ordinarily no-one cares, but in docs you should remember it's `he has'.

i got caught today using an 80-year-old dictionary:
apparently French idioms have advanced since then ... (grin).
