As much as I would like to do that, after looking for
those strings (I found a few more that gtk doesn't like)
in po/fr.po I failed to find them. In fact they are from
libc.mo (e.g. in /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/ on my
system). So now I am a bit confused. Obviously it cannot
be the fault of the freeciv french translators anymore
(sorry :)), is it perhaps that I don't have utf8 french
localization installed on my system? Or perhaps freeciv
is not correctly initializing nls to return translated
text from libc as utf8? I will investigate this problem
some more (though I have no experience at all in properly
building nls-enabled applications); hopefully someone
will speak up about the trivially obvious solution. ;)
