Follow-up Comment #8, sr #108887 (project gettext):

> Would it help if msgfmt, in Desktop Entry mode, would verify that
translations of 'Icon' values point to existing files? To this effect, msgfmt
would need to have option that specifies a list of directories, in which to
search for the icons.

It would help, but I’m not sure how it’s feasible. Some .desktop files use
icons available in the system (e.g. accessories-calculator), others have icons
distributed with the package (e.g. org.gnome.Calculator). The former probably
depends on the system/distribution, the latter can vary between packages.

Maybe a different solution would be to make translating the Icon key opt-in?
So by default it’s skipped when extracting strings, but the developer can
decide to have it translatable in the rare cases where it is needed.
