Changed Alt+ shortcuts to non-conflicting Ctrl+ ones.

Alt+ ones were causing practical problems on OS X (where Alt+ is used
for normal editing), so we had different shortcuts on different
platforms. Furthermore, all platforms use Ctrl/Cmd+ for commands, not
Alt+, so it's better to do that.

Changes are as follows:
 * "Copy From Source Text": Alt+C -> Ctrl+B (same as Qt Linguist)
 * "Translation Is Fuzzy":  Alt+U -> Ctrl+U
