Translations with single quotes prevent grub from booting

When you generate a grub configuration file using grub-mkconfig and your system's language is set to Catalan, the file generated has a problem. It contains the following two lines for every linux entry, which prevent you from booting that entry:
echo    'S'està carregant el Linux (name of kernel here) kernel ...'
echo    'S'està carregant la ramdisk inicial ...'

(Of course replacing "(name of kernel here)" with the name of the kernel)
The problem is obviously that apostrophe, which is required by Catalan grammar. I tried putting a backslash in front of the apostrophe, but it didn't work (syntax error, I think). Enclosing the string in double quotes worked, but I don't know where in the grub generation process that lines are generated...
I'm using grub 2.00-1 in arch linux.
