I am working on an IDE for a domain specific language.

What is the best practice regarding the design of a menu bar?
Should I embed common captions that users familiar with, or rather more domain specific?

For example:

Domain Specific:
Project->New->{Game, Module, Script}

Instead of:

File->New-> {Project, File}

Which leads to a better user experience in your opinion? Edited by Eliad Moshe

I am unsure about what is the best practice; I plan to design menu systems in the future, but I as of now, it feels like it is more natural to go for the Common style, but the Domain Specific style looks logical from a design perspective. It would allow a better way to express things in a more local scope; perhaps Project-specific items should go under the project menu. Edited by Ectara
