I did not find any problem. 
Liam Li, Please upload a screenshot for the problem. Thanks.

Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2009-05-15 04:52:23 UTC
BTW that notes are displayed differently if you run it on different environments, if the translation is wrong, that would be better checking others as well.

Here is testcases:

1. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=imsettings GTK_IM_MODULE= QT_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah im-chooser
2. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=imsettings GTK_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah QT_IM_MODULE= im-chooser
3. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=imsettings GTK_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah QT_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah im-chooser
4. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=blahblahblah GTK_IM_MODULE= QT_IM_MODULE= im-chooser
5. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=blahblahblah GTK_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah QT_IM_MODULE= im-chooser
6. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=blahblahblah GTK_IM_MODULE= QT_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah im-chooser
7. LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=blahblahblah GTK_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah QT_IM_MODULE=blahblahblah im-chooser

Hi Tagoh-san, I found there two spaces before and after "%s". Maybe we could remove them.

Comment 6 Wei Liu 2009-05-15 06:51:20 UTC
In zh-CN.po,two spaces before and after "%s" has been removed and "请注意" has been modified to "注". However, it still doesnot make sense to me compares with the screen shot. What does "%s" refer to here? In the screen shot, there is a string "除 GTK+ 应用程序", but not exist either in en-US.po or zh-CN.po.

I don't know how it looks like on your client application to update the translation but if you look into zh_CN.po directly and find out "Note" thing, you'll see helpful examples to translate them how it looks like on this application. plus, to reduce having a lot of messages, it combines various messages to build up the real string. i.e. for the above case:

msgid "GTK+ applications"
msgstr "GTK+ 应用程序"

msgid ", except %s"
msgstr ", 除 %s 之外"

Hope that helps.
