Not just that.

There are some other strings I can't find them in Ubuntu translation files.

"Checking for updates..."  in Software Updater

"Installing updates..." in Software Updater

"Ubuntu One" in System Settings and Dash

"Welcome to Ubuntu 12.10" in ubiquity

"k" that refer to Kilo in Software Updater
