Hi Andrew,

No typo here, a "man page" refers to the command line tool "man", which 
provide documentation for near every tool under linux.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_pages for more information.

This is the correct list for translation problems and such errors. 
However you should have asked to your translation team before, "man 
pages" is a very common term, and teams are here to answer to such
