Well, the final upload just did an autoaprove of what Edgy had, you
still got those translations as suggestions. Anyway, yes, once the split
was done, the translations should also be split to prevent this kind of

That's not possible, the way the system works is impossible to remove
translations, they always remain as suggestions. Another different thing
is when the English string has been removed from the template, in which
case, you don't see the translations either, but they remain there to be
used in our translation memory database.

If you still think this happened, could you point me to a concrete
message so I can debug this a bit more to see whether it's indeed a bug?
