That’s a perfect example of why you shouldn’t have made your changes in the
first place and reached out to translators instead. We switched to
typographic apostrophe for 3.26. All new strings should already be using
them and we fix them in old strings as we go when working on new strings in
a module. We actually have a translation for dconf-editor currently on
Damned lies which we blocked mid-process because of your changes.
