String Inconsistencyusage between "Visit" and "View" in BP Groups admin page help overview and list table link

Severity: minor Version:
Component: I18N Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch


There is an inconsistency in the usage of the strings "Visit" and "View" in two different files which are used in the Groups admin page.

In the, the string "Visit" is used to indicate the link the user should click in order to view the group in frontend.
However, in the, the string "View" is used as text to the link. This inconsistency can cause confusion for users, specially in non-English sites.

Could you update the string usage to use a consistent term between those two files?
I would suggest to use "View" to indicate the link to the group's frontend page in both files, as this is a more commonly used term in similar contexts. This will help users to easily understand the function of the link and improve the overall user experience.

Thanks in advance,
