Hi Timo, Hi all :)

Many thanks for all your effort for solving this problem.
Indeed I would love to see the search button translated.

Instead of parsing a bugreport by hand and extract the information I was
thingking it would be much easier if we could create a POT file
containing all the string from the page, put it somewere in Launchpad
and link the bug to that template.

By doing this we will have all translations in the same format.

Danilo, do you think we can enable the translations of some PO files
without having a package?
Should we create a project for that?

Many thanks!
