Bad English in Marketplace ("NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIAS...")

Please only post bugs that are new in this build, and tag your post with #pc and/or #xbox.

Are you on Xbox, Steam or Microsoft Store version?
Microsoft Store

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?
No

Brief description of the issue:
If you go to the Marketplace and add filter criteria that result in no results, you will get a message:

"NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIAS HAVE BEEN FOUND`

The word “CRITERIAS” should be “CRITERIA”.

*Please note that if you change this, there is also another message you can get that says:
"NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR SEARCH WORDS"

For consistency’s sake, ideally these messages would either both look like this:

  • NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIA
  • NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR SEARCH WORDS

or like this:

  • NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIA HAVE BEEN FOUND
  • NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR SEARCH WORDS HAVE BEEN FOUND

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:

Detailed steps to reproduce the issue encountered:

  1. Start Microsoft Flight Simulator in English.
  2. Go to the Marketplace.
  3. Click on any of these tabs: AIRCRAFT, WORLD, ACTIVITIES.
  4. Click the “SEE ALL CATEGORY” button (there is a bug report for this issue, too).
  5. Provide a filter that results in no search results. At the moment, you can go to the ACTIVITIES tab and filter on “ON SALE” and it will produce this result. But that may change tomorrow if an activity goes on sale.

Expected result:
A message that reads as either:

  • NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIA
    or
  • NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIA HAVE BEEN FOUND

(As I said above, there is another message that does not say “HAVE BEEN FOUND”, so for consistency, the two should match)

Observed result:
A message:
NO RESULTS MATCHING YOUR CRITERIAS HAVE BEEN FOUND

If you can’t find any filter criteria that trigger this message, just look at the en-US.locPak file, which says this:
"MARKETPLACE.EMPTYING_FILTERS": "No results matching your criterias have been found",

PC specs and/or peripheral set up if relevant:
N/A

So what? Sometimes there is even worse English in the forum :wink: How about dropping a note at the support area?

The purpose of the beta is to expose errors in the upcoming release. Errors in labels are well within scope of bug reporting for the beta.

If the purpose of having a section of the forum created specifically for beta experiences is to share those experiences, what is the value in suggesting that those experiences shouldn’t be shared here?

Fixed in a recent update.
