I understand this (every string change has some reason behind it ;),
but I'm against approving it since this could have been done before
the string freeze, and this has been so for probably two or more
release cycles (i.e. it's not really urgent).
Though, we are early in the string freeze, so Christian Rose might
have a different opinion.

If you get a UI review in the next few days which doesn't bring too
many string changes, I'd be happy to reconsider this and other changes
(basically, because I am aware that UI review is a bit late in this
Of course, I expect any translator, who feels that being a bit less
restrictive to UI review changes than other changes is discriminative
and inappropriate, to speak up :)
