I think it is better to send separate emails to the list when you have
different issues, it is easier to track them.

The issue should be at Transiflex import, because in our repositories
the PO files are in 8 bits.

* For ocitysmap:

  There are strings like "Videregående skole" (line 43).

* For maposmatic:

  There are strings like "Ingen språktilpassing" (line 22).

Could you point me at a specific location where the issue occurs?
