@Gabor: This won't work (ie. your change is good but not enough to fix
In your branch, run "python setup.py build_i18n" and then open the "po/software-center.pot" file.
You will find that there is now:
#. TRANSLATORS: Free here means Gratis
So we still can't distinguish the two distinct "Free" in translations.
We need to use Gettext context feature ( http://www.gnu.org/s/hello/manual/gettext/Contexts.html ).
Unfortunately, it seems that Python does not expose this by default, so it needs some work.
(there is some clues in this thread: http://bugs.python.org/issue2504 )
Something easier may be to just change one of these string, eg. to "Gratis", "Free Software" or whatever suit you.
