And as Manuel said, for actually editing the .po file there are 
many editors, gtranslator, poedit, ksomething, ...

Agreed with Manuel, there was actually several discussions on that
and we settled for the "what people expect more" than "what is the

A shapeless squiggle which is utterly unlike your normal signature,
but which is, nevertheless, all you are able to produce when asked
formally to identify yourself. Muslims, whose religion forbids the
making of graven images, use albuquerques to decorate their towels,
menu cards and pyjamas.
