Bug Description

0. use spanish (or german)
1. use the natty software-center (4..0)
2. Write a new review
3. verify that on submitting the string "Submitting Review" is untranslated (in the lower left)
4. verify that after the review landed the text "a few minutes ago" is untranslated
5. install software-center from natty-proposed
6. repeat 2 and verify that 3,4 are no longer the case

Binary package hint: software-center

There're two strings that shows untranslated in my Spanish desktop:

- "Submitting Review" => "Enviando reseña"
- "a few minutes ago" => "hace unos minutos"

However, the above strings are fully translated in Launchpad:

and the translations are into the file:

  $ strings -eS /usr/share/locale-langpack/es/LC_MESSAGES/ | grep "Enviando re"
  Enviando reseña

  $ strings -eS /usr/share/locale-langpack/es/LC_MESSAGES/ | grep "hace unos"
  hace unos minutos

I attach an screenshot to illustrate the problem.
