Original text as well as translation does no escape quotes. .po format does.

When Po is loaded you should remove all escaping as well as join lines
etc to internal format and then escape it back to output format.
Only "by chance" po shares escaping with c.

While I can do it, it mean do not translate quotes ... I'm unsure about
other languages e.g. German but some other languages uses double quotes
as well.
