Ticket #7071 (confirmed Bug)
SCAYT window should be wider to account for localized versions

At the moment the best idea for SCAYT window localization I can think of is to use the "Name Of SCAYT Function In Foreign Language (SCAYT)" as the name of the feature and the title bar of the dialog window. The "(SCAYT)" fragment is useful, since we are using the abbreviation while describing SCAYT options and leaving it out = confusing the users.
The problem is, in some (popular) languages, like German or French, this text is too long to fit into the title bar. Compare:
Spell Check As You Type
Rechtschreibprüfung während der Texteingabe (SCAYT)
Vérification de l'Orthographe en Cours de Frappe (SCAYT) (after we shorten current faulty title: "Vérification de l'Orthographe en Cours de Frappe (SCAYT: Spell Check As You Type)")
This makes the dialog window stretch in an uncontrollable way (see screenshots). We should come up with a solution to this problem. We can either increase the value for the fixed width of the dialog window or, if possible, set a minimum width value and allow the dialog window to adjust to the contents of the title bar, flowing the rest accordingly.
Mind you, this enhancement might come in handy with other dialog windows with long titles, so it might be useful to think about some universal solution for all dialog windows.
