I have a question. In my progress snapshot, there are 9 choices of time span, namely Today Yesterday Last 7 days Last 2 weeks Last month Last 3 months Last 6 months Last year All time. When I hear "last year" on 26th Dec. 2013, I assume it refers to the year of 2012. However, I think "last year" here means the time span from 27th Dec. 2012 to 26th Dec. 2013. I'm a little confused about the definition of "last year". Why don't you say "last one year" instead of "last year" ? And then when does "this year"represent ?
Would you mind checking it? I'm interested in this problem. When I change the interface from English to Japanese, "last year" changes to”昨年”, and it means "the previous year", 2012. It sounds a little strange for Japanese people. If "last year" shows our statistics since January 1st of this current year, will it become zero at the 1st of the new year?
As a native speaker of Italian, I also perceive "last year" ("l'anno scorso") as "the year before the current one", i.e. 2012 for a few more days. "Over the last year" ("nell'ultimo anno" / "durante l'ultimo anno") means to me "during the last 365 days". This is not the thing I would most like to be improved, but if you can rephrase it, someone will be happy. (You'd make me happy by bringing the "Accent" field back :D)
