The translation files .ts don't keep pace with the code, it's not worthwhile
updating them every time a string is added/removed/changed in the code, they
are updated when we reach the feature freeze.
Most of these are probably not bugs and submitting reports would not be
helpful. If you can wait until the .ts files are resynced again then filing
reports for any strings still not translated would be appreciated.
