U4-11523 - Inconsistent wording for "Send for approval"

The feature "Send for approval" is great, but is mostly worded "Send to publish", which I find a little confusing and potentially will confuse users of the system, especially when subscribing for notifications.

The wording exposed to the editors are "Save and send for approval", there for I think the feature should be worded "Send for approval" everywhere. By this I mean, in User-Group-Settings, and in the Notifications-Subscribing. (where it today is worded "Send to publish")

I've marked as "Up for grabs" so that you or someone else coming along could create a pull request for it.

It would be interesting to see how many localisation changes for this are also required.

I see that localization key are like this:

Send To Publish

Does the alias need to be changed as well?

The alias should not be changed. Because this is what is used to get the translation.

Hi @nielslyngsoe

How many places should this be corrected? I'm having a look now and until now from what I can tell it happens in the context menu when an editor right clicks. It says "Send to Publish" instead of "Send for approval".

And when setting default permissions on a user group. See the attached screendumps. Are there anymore places you can think of? :)

Hi @JanSkovgaard

Super great. I can say it also appears in the Action menu, that appears top right corner when editing a node, but I really hope the options appearing here is the same as the ones in the context menu. (I have added a screenshot of it)

Otherwise I cant think of anywhere else. Wouldn't it be possible to search the code for it? — Just asking cause I haven't reached the level where I have Cloned Umbraco or made Pull-Requests myself, but I will soon get at it. But just to be sure we cover all possibilities. :-)
