Fix typo "location you chose"

Bug Description

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (desktop) features a new Welcome to Ubuntu wizard which shows on the first login after installing or upgrading.

There was a typo in the design documents for the "Help improve Ubuntu" page.

Test Case
1. Download the latest bionic daily image. (This is needed because that image will include the updated gnome-initial-setup package and represents a preview of 18.04.1. Otherwise, the problem is that the first login after a new install will not have SRUs applied yet and gnome-initial-setup is already running before update-manager will prompt to install updates.)
2. Install Ubuntu from that image.
3. Restart and log in to Ubuntu
4. On the "Help improve Ubuntu" page, it should say "location you chose" instead of "location you choose"

5. Do Steps 1-4 with a language other than English

Regression Potential
The biggest concern here is impact on translations.

Proposed mitigation
1. Temporarily bundle Launchpad translations in the package and set X-Ubuntu-Use-Langpack to no
2. Manually tweak the translations so that the updated string is still associated with the current translations.
3. Once the updated string is available for translation in Launchpad, email the ubuntu-translators list to let them know that the verb tense was changed in the English source.

You can restart the wizard after completing it by removing
It won't show the Livepatch page if that has already been set up, but that's not important for this bug.
