About the screenshot in comment #25, thouse strings could come from
gnome-disk-utility, but am not 100% sure. This should be the string:

#. Translators: Label for a partition with a filesystem
#. * %s is the size, formatted like '45 GB'
#: ../src/gdu/gdu-volume.c:316
#, c-format
msgid "%s Filesystem"

Also, there is an "Unable to mount %s" in Nautilus...

For the devicekit-disks problem, looking upstream it has only one
translation. Probably the i18n infrastructure for that has been set up
for a late release. I do remember that other deviceki-* thing were not
set up for i18n/l10n.

The translations for those strings have to be built at build time
though... if I'm not wrong they are not working with langpack.
