The main problem here is to be consistent. Best choice is to leaven them
unchanged (in both places). Havoc starts to rise, if you translate one part
but not the other.

I wrote a compare function for genLang to check for exactly this
consistency, but not even the en-US (original source) was consistent so I
dropped that idea.
