"alt for functions"

You mean to move is always with mouse button pressed?

My mistake, I'm using touchpad. The hint is correct for mouse, I guess.

Some more suggestions of improvement for the original english language file:

1)

#: cbBoardTransparent.Hint
msgctxt "cbBoardTransparent.Hint"
msgid "Toogle transparency of squares on or off"
msgstr ""

->Toggle

2)

#: ulanguage.rmain_updateletterset
msgctxt "ulanguage.rmain_updateletterset"
msgid "Current letter set does not match. Updated from dictionary info?"
msgstr ""

->Update

3)

#: ulanguage.rmain_lostbytime
msgctxt "ulanguage.rmain_lostbytime"
msgid "Final time out for %s. Result has been zeroed"
msgstr ""

time out: A pause from doing something (as work)
time-out: A brief suspension of play

I think better is "%s lost on time. Result has been zeroed"

4)

#: rbWCMChallenge.Hint
msgctxt "rbWCMChallenge.Hint"
msgid "Check move only on explicit challenge (tournament modus)"
msgstr ""

Just for my translation, modus seems to be a word used in law. Is "tournament mode" meant here, or what is the difference with mode and modus? Modus is used also elsewhere.

5)

#: ulanguage.rmain_wordinvalid
msgctxt "ulanguage.rmain_wordinvalid"
msgid ""
"Challenged move consists of invalid words. A bonus of %d point was added to "
"%s's result"
msgid_plural ""
"Challenged move consists of invalid words. A bonus of %d points was added to"
" %s's result"

If I have understood the rules correctly, challenge succeeds even if there is only one invalid word among the words palyed. If it is so, then I suggest the correction:

consists of -> contains
"Consists of" means all words are invalid.
"Contains" means some of the words are invalid.

Toogle: has been changed before
Update: Is actually translated to "The currently active letter set does not match with the information stored in the dictionary. Updated now?"
Time-out: Acknowledged; I used your sugestion.
Modus: Mode is okay. Actual translation is "Check move only on explicit challenge./This setting works according the tournament rules,/where players have to object a move within a short period."
Contains: Thanks, I changed it.

Accumulated: Is now combined

There is still a mistake:
"The currently active letterset does not match with the information stored in the dictionary. Updated now?"
should be "...Update now?" in my opinion.

Of course.
