[Xfce-i18n] xfce4-weather-plugin string freeze

Hi, me again.

While polishing pt_BR translation for xfce4-weather-plugin I was able
to look closely at some possible issues. Here what I found that might
be interesting to be fix - or maybe I'm wrong :-)

1) Missing translation strings for (my previous comment included):
"_Location", "_Units", "_Appearance", "_Scrollbox", "Show Scroll_box"

2) There are some occurrences of "melting point of water", but wasn't
it supose to be "of ice", as ice melts to water? If I'm not wrong and
you're willing to fix it, please watch out for the expression "and its
boiling point", which could mistakenly reference to ice, instead of
water ("boiling point of water").

3) Now a suggestion: related to "Forecast tab in the summary window" I
suggest replace "summary" with "details", as the mention of "summary"
could lead the user to go look for a tab named summary, instead of

P.s.: Congratulations on the tooltips! I learned a lot from they,
which, indeed, made the translation easy.

>> Dear translators,
>> The next version (0.8.3) of the weather plugin is nearing its release, and
>> I'm hereby announcing string freeze. Strings will not be changed anymore
>> except if someone reports a bug about spelling mistakes, conflicting hotkeys
>> or similar, and only within the next three weeks. Release is planned in a
>> month or so.
>> There are quite a lot of new strings and a pretty awful number of tooltips

>> dialog and summary window.
>> NEWS contains the release notes. This version is quite a rewrite, even more
>> than 0.8.2 was, with many fixes and lots of additional functionality. I hope
>> 0.8.3 will be a lot better, though it still doesn't fix that problematic
>> timezone stuff. While everything works fine here - that means no crashes nor
>> malfunctions so far - it's always wise to expect the unexpected, so I'd be
>> grateful for any bugs reported before the release.
>> If you want to build the plugin for translation work and verification,
>> instructions are pretty simple and can be found in the README. There are
>> some strings like the tooltips of the forecast cells that will need some
>> trial-and-error to get the alignment right; just use as many \t (tabs) as
>> you deem necessary to make the layout look good.
>> Please note that 0.8.2 is actually unsupported because it's gradually
>> falling apart, so better don't spend any more time on it.
