When running with pbuilder on my Ubuntu machine it uses the same
version of lintian, so I get the same warning message. I will thus
install Debian to use pbuilder from that.

Can you please point me to a resource how to "[r]emove it in [my]
clean target"? Would I have to add that in debian/rules? How can I
make sure that I will only remove this change to the translation file,
an not any [future] potential valid change?
