Ahh thanks, not always easy when the naming of GUI stuff diverges from the apt package names. Am also annoyed by update-manager not showing the package name prominently. Finding that is usually the reason for me to open the changelog.
The right package did the trick; https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/+source/update-manager/+pots/update-manager/da/64/+translate

Hard to identify package name in Danish translation of update
Status in update-manager package in Ubuntu:
In the Danish translation of the update description pop-out window of
update-notifier it caught my eye (I use English locale on my own
systems) that when looking at the details of a package that is to be
updated the name of the package is appended with a string to form a
compound noun making it hard to identify the actual package name.
Example from the attached screenshot:
"Ændringer for gnome-session-common-versioner:
Installeret version: 22.214.171.124-1ubuntu1
Tilgængelig version: 126.96.36.199-1ubuntu1.16.04.1"
I would prefer a translation of the first line where the package name
is standing out unambiguously, such as:
"Ændringer for gnome-session-common mellem versionerne:"
(in English "Changes for gnome-session-common between the versions:")
Or if it needs to be short, completely leaving out mentioning
"version" as it is quite clear from the following lines that we are
dealing with a version diff.
"Ændringer for gnome-session-common:"
I have unsuccessfully tried to identify the translation string in the update-notifier codebase (http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/update-notifier/ubuntu/) but I guess the change description is generated by apt and thus can be found in some codebase related to it.
