But it's perfectly clear from the dialog itself. There's a button "Check
Repository", if you click on it, then an 'svn st -u' is done.

The information there isn't translated. TortoiseSVN doesn't use the
command line client and therefore doesn't have to parse its output and
translate it.
TortoiseSVN uses the Subversion API svn_client_status() for this. And it
shows the status information returned there in plain text.

"non-versioned" in text but "added" in remote text can only mean that
the files/folder is *not* under version control in the working copy but
someone else has added them and committed them to the repository.
A simple update would/will result in an error, and the files/folder will
be marked as "obstructed" - because they're present in the working copy
but not versioned, and they would have to be replaced by the versioned
ones fetched from the repository.

We're now at version 1.4.1 with TortoiseSVN. Please update first before
asking any more support questions. We only provide support for the
latest version here, anything else would be a waste of time (it's not as
if you'd have to pay for an upgrade, so we take the freedom to expect
you to update/upgrade to the latest version if you expect support).
