The English text says "Check mail" here, so is it actually correct to have the
Japanese text say something different?
msgid "Check mail"
(the English language string)
(the current japanese translation)
Literally means "Check the mail"
(the proposed japanese translation)
ãªãã¬ãã·ã¥ (n,vs) refresh (e.g., memory); (P); EP
So is this really a bug?

the mail" in English. Thus this translation is correct, please update with
An issue actually seems coming from the original English string.
"Check the mail" may cause confusion, and it would be better to change it to
"Refresh" to define it's functionality.
However I am not native English speaker but Japanese speaker, so the decision
should remain to you.
I am unable to view your png files, could you please provide URLs?
