I hoped you'd ask :)
I've asked this question some time ago:
and have got the answer:
If there should be difference in the translation the same reasoning
would apply to the english strings
- -> seems to me that the right way to fix this is to change the
english strings to be more clear.
So I assume, this should be no problem after all? I mean, even if it's the
case, we'd have a fuzzy string in a "merged" translation file, which has
been considered an error all along...
