Hi all,

To make things as little disruptive possible for users and translators,
we've updated the translation template with the new string already, but
we will release the new Software Centre package with the change at the
same time as the next language pack update, which I'm planning for the
11th of May (more details later).

This way translators will have time to do their work and users won't
notice the change.

Thanks Gary for ensuring the change goes smoothly.
