Bug Description

An issue has been encountered when translating "Unsubscribe from this %s".

The two possibilities are:

Unsubscribe from this forum
Unsubscribe from this topic

In German though the English "forum" / "topic" is inserted even though the normal %s is used in the translation even though both "forum" and "topic" have been translated.

These strings come up in /interaction/forum/lang/en.utf8/interaction.forum.php string forumposthtmltemplate

I can't figure out why the German translation wouldn't be shown for "forum" / "topic".
