Bug Description

When reviewing a translation of Ubuntu pay I came across a few strings about "poison". Could you please explain what this is and how it should be translated.

Regards Kenneth

Hi Kenneth,

first of all, thanks for volunteering to do the translation!

This is a view we use internally, just for purposes of testing, so you don't need to translate it.

Thanks,
Ricardo

No problem.

Yeah, I guessed as much

If they shouldn't be translated, then they shouldn't be marked for translation. The fact that these strings are not meant to be translated will now only reach me, but all the other 150+ translation teams will not know and hence will waste time trying to figure them out and translate them.

Regards Kenneth
