In computer terms, sometimes there is a need to distinguish between items in a list that are checked (e.g. lists that have a checkbox next to them) and items that are selected (e.g. user clicks on one or more rows in a table) because sometimes items can be checked and selected at the same time. What are some other words that can be used to describe them so that it is clear and unambiguous for other languages as well, because apparently checked and ticked are confusing between English and American speakers.
I am looking for terms like 'marked', 'flagged', keeping in mind that they would ideally also serve as a noun and verb.
Yes, it is one of those questions that gets stuck between both worlds. The reason to ask it here is because it is something that needs to be shown to a normal user, and that they would have to understand it. To programmers it doesn't matter as long as there is some rule to define the different behaviours (as you see on the screen).
I wanted to know whether the term is appropriate for other languages, and also whether it is generally clear or slightly unambiguous or unintuitive.
