Ok, yes, we have this cases. (the old translated description has 4
parts, one of this is removes: we get a 'unstranslated' description
with 3 translated parts)

And yes, I can write a little program to find this cases and use the
translated parts to translate the whole description.

The reason is:
  The description is use als msgid and the parts are more a
  translation memory.
