Description Rafael Fontenelle 2016-05-09 13:53:12 UTC
In gtk/gtkplacesidebar.c, translating the string 'Mount and open “%s”' using '\"' (instead of “ and ”) results in displaying 'quot;' where it'd be expected  a double quotes character '"'.  e.g. In pt_BR, we translated it as "Monta e abre \"%s\"" and an user spotted "Monta e abre """

Please allow other quotes character in this string or, alternatively, add a comment for the translation to NOT change the quotes character.

add_place() is wrong in escaping the translated string. If something needs escaping, it is the volume name, and that needs to happen before the g_strdup_printf puts it into the translated string

Actually, no. It should be fine. And I can't reproduce the problem you describe: \" works just fine here, in tooltips on the places sidebar
