I went there and I still don't understand why you have the force
option, since it works just fine without.
force means: "I don't care what anybody has done so far translating
this package, throw it away and start again."
I honestly don't understand the point of having such an option set by default.

Well, there is no current translation for the med-imaging package, see:
Some of the descriptions have been translated, in particular 9948 has.
None of the other descriptions has though, so if you have the version
from sid installed, you won't get a translated description.

If you're complaining that the translations doesn't appear on the
mirrors, please complain to the ftp-master (there's a bug on it
somewhere, can't find it right now), it's a known problem which has
been running for years and doesn't seem to be nearing resolution any
time soon.

Have a nice day,
