  Unfortunately I am one of the translators of this package, but it was not
imported by me. I think that the guys that do the imports (I think it is the
binary and source package maintainer) has done it according to the policies
in order to have it enabled on the official repositories.

  All Ubuntu translations are done on Rosetta aiming the facility of string
reuse. Every package translated has its original and translated strings, on
all languages available, reused among them. It makes easier the whole
translating process because there are a lot of common strings among packages
( e.g.: Options, Bold, Italic, Save, Open, Render Image, Save As, etc.)

  Actually there is indeed some Scribus translations going on on Ubuntu
repository on Rosetta, but the Scribus project could use itself Rosetta to
maintain translation and also make use of the translated strings reuse and
the feature that any end-user could go the the web on
http://launchpad.net/Scribus_Rosetta_Path/ and make suggestions to the
official translators, thus helping the project. It is what actually happens
to some programs already on Ubuntu Linux distribution. On gnome, for
example, there is a menu item ("translate this program") that opens directly
the Rosetta path for that package and wait for suggestions of the guests or
actual translations from the official translators.

  Yes, it is just before, but outside, its a regular C/C++ comment before
the string.
