    Polish English mixture

    I describe PowerPoint features in English while the version of the software is Polish and the names of options are in Polish:
    I am not sure how I should write:

    the option Dodaj efekt or the Dodaj efekt option
    the option Rysuj ścieżkę niestandardową or the Rysuj ścieżkę niestandardową option

    Hi!

    You can't say the option Dodaj efekt because the noun 'option' is used here attributively (przymiotnikowo) and has to be translated as 'opcyjny'. But you can say: the option: Dodaj efekt.
    So, I think that "the Dodaj efekt option", "the Rysuj ścieżkę niestandardową option" is what you need.
