No, we have to trust the translators. As Jean-Marc said. The only way is
tro proof-read the translations. If you are the only translator, the
chances for errors slipping through are obviously greater than when you
work in a team and review the others changes.

This is a fuzzy (automatically translated) sentence. This happens quite
often when you update from the .pot file, because poedit (or msgmerge
behind the scenes) uses a proximity algorithm to suggest translations.

The proximity algorithm is sometimes very good, like in the following
case where he suggest the translation from "Repairing external renames"
for "Repairing External Copies" -> "Réparation des renommages externes".

But sometimes it is of course completely wrong :)
