there is already a "_(" (Tap)")" in the previous section so the string is translated, it should be trivial to do the same

"(Press)" doesn't seem translated yet though, but well the change should be the same

There is also a _(" (Press)") for "show launcher", so this is translated too.
This is indeed the easy part of this bug, but don't forget the "shortcut::COMPIZ_KEY_OPTION" issue.

This is also a problem in English, because it leads to a hint screen with mixed wording (eg. "Ctrl" and "Control" are both used).
And the "Alt + key_above_tab" is displayed as "Alt + Oe" in all languages.

@Nicolas: thanks for the report. I fixed the translation issue.
For the other issue, it was bug #971332, but it's fixed for me? (at least on the key combination I have), they are in French. Please follow up on the other bug report with some precise cases.

I confirm as well there is no need for additional translation requirement, "Press" is internationalized already as well.

@didrocks: thanks, bug #971332 fix did not reach Precise yet, so that's why it is still buggy here. I'm looking forward to the next update! :-)
