I would like the ability to easily locate short, non-technical strings
to translate. Taking GTK as an example module, the first string people
see is "Error parsing option --gdk-debug". It would be much easier to
persuade people to contribute if the first string was something like
"_Add" (actually any of the stock labels in that module). Searching
for "add" brings up 11 results; the obvious one is result #5.

I believe that anything we can do to make it easier to locate and
translate commands, labels, and menu items will go a long way to help
build up confidence in new or casual contributors.
