Eeek. IMO "Image Manipulator" is really akward. I'd suggest to use
"Image Editor" instead. Unless someone comes up with a better
suggestion, I will do that change in the HEAD branch.

The translations are handled by po files. We don't keep gimp.desktop
with translations in CVS. I will let the translators take care of
translating the generic name.

There's no "ta" translation for GIMP so that's not our problem.  The
gimp.desktop file as shipped with GIMP is validated using
desktop-file-validate so there shouldn't be such problems with our
desktop file. If people use other gimp.desktop files than the
originally shipped one that's their fault (and they should be kicked
badly for doing that).
