I have a list with some boolean (yes/no) columns that are included in an email that is sent by a workflow. The fields appear as true/false when the email is sent, but I would rather see yes/no.

I could create extra text columns and have them set to "Yes" or "No" in the workflow, but there has to be an easier and better way.

One direct would to use a variable (text or even Boolean) in the workflow whose value you could set according to the field value. Than use that particular variable in the mail message.
