Labels

Spacing and Alignment: See page "Layout" (to be added)

Language: Keep labels short - Be aware that translated English text can expand up to 30% in some languages.

Do not shorten your labels to the point of losing meaning, however. A three-word label that provides clear information is better than a one-word label that is ambiguous or vague. Try to find the fewest possible words to satisfactorily convey the meaning of your label.

Capitalization: See page Projects/Usability/HIG/Capitalization

Keyboard Accelerators: Ensure that a label with a keyboard accelerator is associated with the control it labels.
