Can you tell from where this translation is (PO-file)?

If it is from .desktop file, open it (the file can be usually found in  
/usr/share/applications) in the text editor ("gksudo gedit" in the  
Terminal) and try to experiment with Name[gd] line. You need to logout  
then login for the changes to take effect.

If it is from the general translations (saved in /usr/share/locale/gd) try  
to edit and recompile it with CLI or PoEdit.

It is better to use Anders Jenbo advice to achieve what you want now.
