LOL guys I'm totally confused now. Which is it? The outcome I want is that when I get this in Launchpad:

System Settings
Roghainnean an t-siostaim

the result for the user on screen is
an t-siostaim

or at least

Roghainnean an

NOT as it currently is:
Roghainnean an t-

Either approach suggested to date is fine by me but I'd kind of like to know which one works before I go changing a lot, seeing there's only 1 l10n update a year, I can't very well experiment ;)
