Bug Description

Looks like there was an accidental word-wrap problem in po/es.po.

Line 13 is really the end of line 12. I've included a patch to send upstream.

Here's a copy of the email that IS has been getting for a while now:

Hello Launchpad Translations Administrators,

On 2016-03-18 13:50z (12 days 14 hours 16 minutes ago), you uploaded a
file with Spanish (es) translations for glib20 in Ubuntu Xenial package
"glib2.0" to Launchpad.

We were unable to import the file because of errors in its format:

Line 13: Invalid content: u', 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.'

If you use gettext, you can check your file for correct formatting with
the 'msgfmt -c' command. Please fix any errors raised by msgfmt and
upload the file again. If you check the file and you don't find any
error in it, please look for an answer or file a question at

For your convenience, you can get the file you uploaded at:

Thank you,

The Launchpad team

This is a recurring problem with the Spanish translations because of a bug in the gtranslator app used by the primary Spanish translator for GNOME.
