Hi Shankar, 
The problem is that "Java variables" validation is turned on for this non-Java project(I'm assuming its C from the looks of the source). 

This is something that project maintainers need to manage on the validation options to make sure only the appropriate validations are turn on for their project. They can enforce certain validation options as well to make sure translation can't be saved if there's error. 

This can be done in the project/version settings page. Only project maintainers have access to this option. 

Alternately, translators are free to turn off validations which are not enforced by project maintainers. This can be done in the right side menu of editor, click on the icon with tick symbol.   

From screen shot, the validation message is showing as 'warning' which means
1) This validation (Java variables) is not enforced by maintainers.
2) Translator still can save their translations despite the having validation warning.  

If the warning is such a distraction, please contact the project maintainers to turn off the "Java variables" validation for the project.

Let us know if you need more info.

As comment #1 works, I hereby close it as NOTABUG.
However, we might plan to file an RFE for setting the validation warning respecting the computer language.
