Bug Description

When apport files a bug against unity, either resulting from a crash, or via "ubuntu-bug", the dialog goes something like "Thanks for reporting a bug in Unity, is this a graphical bug ...", etc. That message in that dialog should also be translated.

My locale is set to de_DE.UTF-8 .

Apport can't carry translations for all package hooks in the world. If hooks want to do that, they can call dgettext() themselves.

However, I don't think it's very important. If you want to file a LP bug, you need to do that in English anyway.

I don't agree with Martin on this issue. I think bug reporting is important for non-English-speaking users, especially new users. I heard many Windows users who don't speak English complain about error messages beeing in English and not in their native language.

Also, this is an GUI thing so it is farely visible even though it shouldn't show up for too many users it might though.
