Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2015-09-28 14:26:04 EDT
These strings come directly out of the Chinese translation:

#: ../src/preferences.ui.h:5
msgid "Preferences"
msgstr "配置文件首选项(_P)"

#: ../src/preferences.ui.h:18
msgid "Encodings"
msgstr "编码(_E)"

This needs to be fixed in the .po file, ideally upstream. Adding "(_P)" as a suffix only makes sense if the string has a mnemonic underline in it to begin with.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2015-09-28 14:30:44 EDT
I've filed an upstream bug for this issue.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2016-04-05 10:24:52 EDT
Are you going to provide a patch for this ?

If it is sufficient to just take those upstream translations you showed and strip the (_E) from the one that still has it, we can do that ourselves, too.

Just let me know what you prefer

Hi Matthias

Red Hat Simplified Chinese (zh_CN) translator went through the PO, and suggested me to correct them as below. The translation for "Preferences" needs to be corrected, while "Encodings" looks fine.

msgid "Preferences"
 => 首选项 

msgid "Encodings"
 => 编码
