Fixes #5032

Fixing some formatting issues in LMMS-1.2 caused by translations.
Continuation of #4482

Problematic translation strings replaced with <translation type="unfinished"/> as mentioned here except for the polish translation where I removed one of the words. I don't speak polish. Not a bit.

This is leftover from #4482. I can fix it by going over the translations again and just removing the borked lines but maybe this is best handled on Transifex?

Yes, these changes will be eventually got overridden by Transifex. However, removing translations is not a decent way to do this since you will always find some languages got extra long strings somewhere.

What is the way to go about this then? Report the problematic lines on Transifex instead?
I won't have time to dive into that site. I tried once and we didn't seem to be compatible...
Do we merge back translations from Transifex for lmms-1.2 ?

For me @liushuyu it was some kind of lazy translation. Translate without caring about avalaible space and line lenght.

@liushuyu I don't get this. Should this PR be closed?
I don't have time to read up on how Transifex works unfortunately. Even if they will be removed later by transifex it will fix the formatting issues in lmms-1.2.1 that is currently being prepared. Should these strings be reported on Transifex each one separately and then fixed by the translators?

You can merge this for now.

You can open an issue on Transifex.

OK. Is this one issue per string? I don't find a general issue tracker there.

Yes

I don't find a general issue tracker there.

There's a per-language tracker (discussion section). This is where Transifex does not work well.

@liushuyu I have fixed the Swedish strings on transifex but for the rest I don't think I have access to even comment on the other languages (and I probably shouldn't have... :) )
I have found the LMMS translation team 'discussions page' however and will start a conversation there. Thanks for your patience!
