Yes, it is, as it has been pointed out by Stavros Giannouris. You need
only translate the text after the "pipe" character. I just would like
to remind you that wherever you see the particular string "Button
label|Something here" it means this is a button label (most likely) in
the xfce-mcs-manager dialog. This was recently committed by Benedikt
to some mcs plugins to allow translators to add newlines just in case
the translated string is much bigger than the original in english.
It's an effort to avoid having a too wide mcs-manager dialog, as it
was previously discussed initially in xfce4-dev [1] and after moved to
xfce-i18n [2].
