If the original text does not escape the quotes, you should not escape
them in the translation either. In this case here, you should use the
single quotes instead of the double quotes.

The problem is the resource type: these strings are used in the xml
resource for the ribbon, and there special chars are escaped differently
(xml escaping, e.g. '<' needs to be written as &lt;)

So you should always use the same quotes as the original string, and
escape them the exact same way.

I'll add a change to the ResText tool so that it removes those escaping
backslashes also for the xml resource.
