FYI, you (Olivier, Jari) can insert the comment for the translators
like below:

  From thunar/trunk/thunar-vfs/thunar-vfs-info.c:

  377  /* TRANSLATORS: `Exec' is a field name in a .desktop file. You should leave it as-is. */
  378  g_set_error (error, G_FILE_ERROR, G_FILE_ERROR_INVAL, _("No Exec field specified"));
