Bug Description

When I hold down Super I get a popup image detailing the shortcut keys. There are a few issues with this image which I have filed as separate bugs.

Workspaces Text too long to fit. I see "Super + Alt + Cursor ke.." Which I presume should say "Cursor keys"

This is a problem with translated texts too as german text for example is usually longer than english text.

This is really ugly, affects multiple languages and VERY visible so I think this should be fixed BEFORE the release!

@Simeon: it's a no way a release blocker, we have hundred of annoyances and graphical issues that would be nice to fix and we will sort them over time, it just doesn't seem realistic that will be fixed during the hard freeze

Why does Unity not apply the new translation strings for the overlay?

https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/quantal/+source/unity/+pots/unity/de/+translate?batch=10&show=all&search=linke+oder+rechte e.g does not seem to work. It does still use the old strings.
