This actually was my concern, too. On the other hand I can understand  
Alex. This awkward situation of original strings changing, however,  
will only occur once, if we do a complete proof-reading of the  
originals in one go.

I guess, Alex is right about prefering to change the originals in  
upstream code.

@Alex: for new original strings I will keep an eye on the commits and  
make remarks on language if necessary (or simply commit a corrected  
version of the string).

@Stefan: if you find time, it would be awesome if you could go through  
all the originals (e.g. in the x2goclient_de.ts file) and send Alex  
(on this list) a list of all originals that you think should be  
updated. I know that this is a bunch of work, but I myself should  
rather focus on coding, I guess. So if you could take over this job  
(whose result will be a PITA for all translators... but just only once  
if done properly) that would be awesome!
