Bug Description

Re : Wi-Fi Network Authentication menu not translated during install

During a new installation, I had the following window in English instead of French :
Wi-Fi Network Authentication Required

Authentication required by Wi-Fi network
Passwords or encryption keys are required to access the Wi-Fi network '(myADSLbox)'.
Show key

Some of these sentences have actually been proposed - and some have even been reviewed - in French translations here :

Wi-Fi Network Authentication Required

Authentication required by Wi-Fi network

Passwords or encryption keys are required to access the Wi-Fi network

At which stage of the installation does that window show up? Or are you talking about the live session ("Try Ubuntu")?

@Mariusz: Please note my questions in comment #4.

This window shows during the installation process, almost at the beginning, right after a slide with available Wi-Fi network shows up. I think it's right before the screen when you choose to download or not the updates during the install and to enable or not third party software.

When I choose my home WiFi network from the list and click "Connect" (far bottom-right button, like "Next"), then this Wi-Fi Network Authentication window shows up (as a smaller one, in front of the main installation).

@Sebastien: Is this a reason to not strip translations from network-manager-applet?
