[GNC-dev] translation of new register helper panels

Thanks for your input.

So what's happening is that PoEdit doesn't process correctly the strings 
starting with an empty line ""

By removing the empty "" they are displayed correctly in PoEdit, 
otherwise i just an't seem to find them in the interface.

I don't know why i couldn't find the strings in the po files, maybe a 
settings of the search.

How do you advise me to handle this problem? Is this something related 
to PoEdit ?

Best regards,

Alain Sanguinetti
