We a developing a Web application. My co-worker, who is a native German speaker, created the following registration form. I assume that he checked a dictionary for the translation of
address as the options. We already have a field for
title which takes an academic title such as Dr. (our software is used primarily by academic researchers), so he chose "Address".
To me, it's rather confusing on a registration form, where a user's first thought is "Do they want me to tell them where I live?". And if one reads the hint to the right, "Name and affiliation will be displayed as
address title first name last name", without noticing the field name first, it's even more confusing.
Academic title, but this still leaves me with the problem of what to call the "Mr/Ms" option. Any ideas?
