Excuse me for being boring, but many of the original strings 
are in a sort of juvenile jargon, untranslatable and 
un-understandable for laymen.

'voice/devoice (someone/something) in' ?
'a message to dent' ?

I understand 'dent' as sending a message through the 
'Identi' service, there's also 'tweet' when using Twitter. 
But imagine that we'd use different words for telephoning 
depending on the carrier used (I'm AT&T-ing someone...).

Would it be inconvenient to at least add some context to the 
strings, or even review the original phrases ?

Best regards,
