The attached screenshot shows (for both 2.18.16 and master) the titles of the main save as dialogs that you get when you right click on a raster or vector layer and choose "Save as", and the titles of the file chooser dialogs that you get when you click the "..." or "Browse" button in the main save as dialogs.

The new "Select layer as" wording for vector files is clearly a mistake.

But was the intention to leave it as "Save layer as..." and change the raster wording to also say "Save layer as..."?
Or was the intention to change the vector wording to "Select output file"?
I would suggest the former, but I haven't had a good look to see what is used in other dialogs, or if any of the UX manuals say anything relevant.
