Some visible strings

Hi translators,

While triaging some of the bugs in the Ubuntu Translations project [1],
I've come across some related to visible strings which can be quickly
translated, and I thought I'd mention them.

== GDM password string ==

When starting GDM, users are prompted to enter their password. The
"Password:" string does not come from gdm itself, but from the linux-pam

(substitute 'ca' for your language code)

== Indicator messages ==

The message indicator on the panel will only show translations for the
messaging applications in its list if the indicator-messages template is
translated (more info here [1])

I see the following languages have not yet got any translations for
indicator messages, but there might be more:

* Basque
* Bosnian
* Czech
* Greek

== Indicator session ==

The "New Session..." message in the session indicator was changed to
"Change User..." (see [2])

I see that at least the following languages still haven't got a
translation for this one. Since that string was already translated for
most languages in fast-user-switch-applet, it might just be one click

* Asturian
* Bulgarian
* Galician
* Romanian
* Vietnamese

If any of you has got any other tips on those visible but
not-so-easy-to-find strings, now it's a good time to share them :)
