Menu entry not translated - what to do?

Hi there,

I noticed that Gparted menu entry is not translated - it's name is just
"Partition Editor" in every language (see
/usr/share/applications/gparted.desktop, there are translations in
Comment-section but not in Name).

I don't know how these .desktop-files are generated, but it looks like
that there is just witch doesn't include
translations, and gparted.desktop with translations is created while
building the package. So I think these translations are imported from
.po-files. At least in Finnish translation string "Partition Editor" is
translated (gparted is 100% translated into Finnish), so the translation
exists but it isn't imported into .desktop-file.

So I reported this as a bug in Launchpad
( But as
you see, the bug was rejected. Now I'm confused, what should I do? Where
should I report this problem?
