The Translation Project isn't really set up for English translations.

I vaguely recall trying to interest them in that several years ago,
for British English spellings, but it didn't take.  Perhaps you can
try again.  In the meantime the current behavior is OK, just as
American spellings are OK even in Britain.

Ironic, isn't it, that English-speakers are sometimes 2nd-class
citizens, even for software developed by English-speakers?  But if
it's any consolation, the translations of these strings are often
botched.  For example, it's fairly common for the 'ls' columns to not
line up, or for information to be lost.
