I can't work out Rosetta so I'll leave someone else to do it. According
to the UK translation team "Deleted Items" is the preferred nomenclature
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EnglishTranslation/WordSubstitution), however I
don't think it is suitable. For a start, it loses the real-world
metaphor, and is too long and cumbersome. I can understand objections to
"Trash", but "Wastebasket" seems perfect to my mind, and is consistent
with previous Ubuntu releases. I also retains the original meaning of
"Trash" which "Deleted Items" does not. "Waste Bin" could also work.

"Deleted items folder" name doesn't make sense
