Bug Description

I just did a walkthrough of the English PO-file for this when translating/reveiwing for Swedish. I noticed a lot of
inconsistency in the English language file which should be cleaned up ( it would be an easy thing to fix).

Example 1 - inconsistenst capital usage

Most of the sentences (98%) begins with capitals. However some don't..

#: ../menu-data/anagramarama:anagramarama.desktop.in.h:2
msgid "fast paced anagram puzzle game using SDL"

#: ../menu-data/astromenace:astromenace.desktop.in.h:2
msgid "hardcore 3D space shooter with spaceship upgrade possibilities"

#: ../menu-data/between:between.desktop.in.h:2
msgid "game about consciousness and isolation"

#: ../menu-data/code-aster-gui:code-aster-gui.desktop.in.h:1
msgid "code-aster-gui"

and many more...

Example 2 - Spelling errors

#: ../menu-data/fltk1.1-games:flsudoku.desktop.in.h:2
#: ../menu-data/fltk1.3-games:flsudoku.desktop.in.h:2
msgid "Suduku Number Game"
Sudoku

and more....

Example 3 - Missing spaces in words

#: ../menu-data/unity-webapps-googlecalendar:GoogleCalendargooglecom.desktop.in.h:1
msgid "GoogleCalendar"

#: ../menu-data/unity-webapps-googledocs:GoogleDocsdocsgooglecom.desktop.in.h:1
msgid "GoogleDocs"

#: ../menu-data/unity-webapps-googlenews:GoogleNewsgooglecom.desktop.in.h:1
msgid "GoogleNews"

#: ../menu-data/unity-webapps-googleplus:GooglePlusplusgooglecom.desktop.in.h:1
msgid "GooglePlus"

and more....

Just to chime in, the correct spelling of the Japanese number game is "Sudoku", not "Sudoko".

One more typo found in :menu-data/desmume:desmume.desktop.in.h:2:

"Nintento DS emulator" should begin with "Nintendo" instead.

The .desktop files are provided by the package and just collected in app-install-data-ubuntu. So comment #2 should really be a bug about desmume not app-install-data-ubuntu.
