Bug Description

In all the software we ship in Ubuntu we use American English (en-US) messages as the source for translations. These can then be translated to any language or variant, such as British English (en-GB).

In the Unity shortcuts hints overlay, the current message (for the want of a better name) for the place where discarded files go is "Rubbish Bin", which is the en-GB version.

In order to be consistent with the rest of the desktop and with the translations, the original message should refer to "Trash", which can then be translated to "Rubbish Bin" in en-GB and will allow the right translation to be shown in the user's desktop for their chosen locales.

It might seem a trivial issue, but those involved in bug 406626, its duplicates and follow-ups will remember that it's a sensitive topic...
