David and me have talked with Marc about "\" thing on #ubuntu-devel.
He told us that they are needed to indicate the following newline
should be ignored in the code.
He added they're not meant to be like \n, they're meant to enable the
template files to be more readable by having long lines wrapped.
The lines are merged by the parser when \ is followed by a newline, so
it will be the same if you just don't use \ nor newline.

So, we have to translate strings as a single line without "\".

He ended saying that the issue with the program will definitely be
addressed early in the lucid cycle.
