From gettext's manual: “Note that when a translation is missing, the
msgid argument is returned unchanged.”

If you're not familiar with gettext, po files are per-language bunch
of msgid/msgstr pairs, with msgid being usually in English. I don't
know of a fallback mechanism to try and get the missing translations
from another language.
