Software categories appear untranslated

Bug Description

Reproduced it on both a Catalan and Hungarian locale.

Some of the categories shown on the initial Software Center screen appear untranslated. They are:

* Accessories
* Education
* Games
* Graphics
* Office
* Sound & Video
* Universal Access

I think it's possible that none of them are loading translations, and that the ones appearing translated are just been loaded from somewhere else in the .mo file. One other thing I've noticed is that all of these strings are in the template and are translated, except for "Sound & Video", which doesn't appear in the template and is thus not exposed in Launchpad for translation.

These are very visible strings, and it would be great if their translations could be loaded.

After testing it from the development branch, this seems to now be
partly fixed:

      * The categories on the box on the far left now appear all
      * However, those same categories in the "What's New" and "Top
        Rated" boxes appear untranslated.
