Hi Daniel,

A couple of cycles ago I filed a bug requesting the header text to be
translatable, which was eventually fixed in Checkbox.

I now see the untranslated "System Testing" string in the header again,
even though it is translated in Launchpad. So I assume that this has
regressed and we're back to non-translatable static text (or perhaps it
is a consequence of the of this bug).

Would it not be possible to e.g. reuse the Software Center code already
has for its banners? Visually it'd be identical and the default banner's
text ("Our star apps") on the SC is fully translatable already.

Right now, the "System Testing" text says nothing to non-English
speakers, and it feels a bit out of place in a desktop that is otherwise
fully translated.
