Bug Description

The remaining strings are not translatable (at least in Launchpad):
https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/raring/+source/transmission/+pots/transmission/de/+translate?show=untranslated

Launchpad message:
»'msgstr' is not a valid C format string, unlike 'msgid'. Reason: In the directive number 1, the character '&' is not a valid conversion specifier.«

Well, the bug is fixed in so far as i managed to work around the bug and complete the translations a different way. The root problem may crop up in future, but it can be avoided on our end with a little tweaking.
