In gnome-utils package seems to be the same. And there will be much more
packages. I thing it's translators fault (or they don't know which
format to use - answer is: same as in date program (man date)). I fix it
for Slovak. Fix it for your language.

Something another:
I have same problem as Ljubisa Radovanovic. I translated offline .po
file (control-center-2.0 for Slovak language) downloaded from
rosetta. I upload it to rosetta, everything seems OK. I got message:
"Thank you for your upload. The translation content will appear in
Rosetta in a few minutes." but after two days, package is still
untranslated. I reported it as bug but who can put that file on server?
I don't want to loose 700 translations.
