I'm looking for the translation of 28 short sentences to their "online" equivalent which can not be found by simply using a dictionary (The big text is mostly context clarification)

The forms that are used on websites and in applications are translated different in this "online" context (For example: On a website, the button "OK" in English, if it will be translated using a Romanian dictionary, will be translated to "Bine" which has the meaning: "I'm doing well" or "I accept what you proposed". In an application or online form, this translation is wrong, thus confusing the user. In an application, a good translation for the word "OK" in Romanian language would be "Continua" which implies that the user can go to the next step, and using "Continue" in English is counter intuitive because users are accustomed to buttons displaying "OK" as text if they no longer need to enter any data in the next step. So this is why i'm looking for translation to the "online" equivalent.)

These texts are for a mobile/online application that helps the users manage their passwords.

I'm looking for the "online" use of these texts/words applicable for the context i will define as "(CONTEXT:...)" and between () after each sentence that i look to be translated. The text explaining the context and the text in () doesn't need to be translated, it's there to specify what the text must express when translated.

If you do have the choice to use a short version for translation (Example: "Enter your password" versus "Enter the password that belongs to you") without sacrificing the meaning, please use the short version.

The texts help the user navigate and use the application. These are text for buttons and text form fields.

Thank you very much.

(CONTEXT: The user opens the application for the first time, he didn't read any instructions yet. There is a field where he can enter the password of his choice to be used later in the application for generating other passwords, this can be any password but to avoid confusion i will ask for his password. After he enters his password he clicks a "OK" button to go the next step. On the same page there is a text explaining how the password will be used)

1.Text to be translated: "Enter your password"

(Hint for the password field - It has to specify "your", implying that the password belongs to the user, it is his password that he must enter.)
