What is the part of speech for 'sketch' in 'Menu -> New Group -> Sketch In New Workplane'? And of 'sketch-in-plane' in default group name?

Drawing. A sketch is a drawing. Often created with a pencil but not always.

In my opinion in "Sketch In New Workplane" it is a verb and in 'sketch-in-plane' it is a noun. However it could be a noun in the former as well as in "[create a new] Sketch In New Workplane".

Czech treated it as a noun
German treated it as a verb
Spanish - I can't say
French is ambiguous just like in English (I think?)
Russian - noun - literally "Create a sketch in a new workplane"
Ukrainian - noun

Japanese and Chinese - no idea :-)
Turkish - no idea

I believe it's a noun after reading the git blame.

(no group) -> New Drawing Group -> New Drawing in 3d -> Drawing in 3d -> Sketch in 3d

Indeed. So if Jonathan intended it as a noun let it be a noun.

On the other hand the "Sketch" menu is definitely a verb.
