Bug description:
  I started reporting bug 951025, but I think that one is probably just
  part of a bigger bug.

  It seems that most if not all of the Checkbox UI is not translatable,
  or at least its translations are not exposed in Launchpad.

  I can think of several causes:

  - The checkbox.pot template is not up to date (this would explain
translations not being in Launchpad)
  - The Checkbox UI strings not being marked for translation (this would
explain translations not being in Launchpad)
  - The translation domain is not properly set in the code (this would
explain translations not being loaded)

  I think the first thing to determine is why are the UI strings not in

  I'm marking this bug as Critical from the translations side, as
  Checkbox is an Ubuntu upstream app installed by default, and it needs
  to keep up to the promise of an OS available in every user's language.
