sigh need more space to answer your ... answer. :) You're right with the Alexandrian library example. We also had the idea of the tower of Babylon. The question that then followed was "In which culture or part of the world would this be understood?". I guess you see my problem... Making something simple isn't simple as there's no default icon for this.

+1 for a long educational answer. As I've studied architecture, I know that process. Point is that it didn't help me much or bring me further. The first banner on top is what I did straight out of my head - we needed something fast as this is at least a freely available piece of software. The second one came out after brainstorming, lots of discussion (and a bad mood - hence the recycling of those parts). In fact it now is a question like this one: I really ask for a visual representation as I didn't find one

Hi Jack. Thanks for your answer. Two notes: First, we got a finished plugin already available on GitHub. Now we're searching for a banner content that shows quickly what this plugin is about (it's not about translated content, but about a translated WP admin UI). Second, we can't use flags, as the plugin is about languages, which are often shared among countries (or at least parts of them). Flags would miss the point.

@DA01 Do I remember it correct? Are you one mod or high rep user from DG.SE? Anyway. Flagged for moving.

@DA01 Not really. I don't care how exactly the graphical look is. It's about bringing the "about" as quick as possible to the user. The important fact is to not leave anyone out and not being a racist. So it's more about the experience the user has and not about how pretty or clear the visual style is.

To state it one more time as clear as I can ;) "It's about summing and explaining elements, not about how the exact banner should look like".

@Brendon "I'm searching for better ideas that communicate the idea of "User specific Interface (language)"." So basically it's about "Iconic language" that communicates the idea better.

Ehm, you're adding depth/perspective for a shadow beneath a flat object?

comment New generation of 'Edit' icon that is not a pencil?
As I'm a technical engineer, I can tell you one thing for sure: In tech terms, it's difference :) So if you're comparing two values/shapes, etc. then you're using the triangle.

comment New generation of 'Edit' icon that is not a pencil?
Δ is not "change". It's "difference" in math. So actually it'd say »I want to make a difference«, which feels kind of strange to me. Not downvoting, as it's an interesting approach. Sidenote: It's a triangle with a thicker border on the left, so the "difference" is hidden in there and won't be visible on small screens.

You made me lough - I didn't ever see it that way. Aside from pen/pencil: Yes. Maybe I'm already routine-blinded.
