I don't think using tabs for laying out text is a great idea. Different users have different system fonts chosen, so what works for one of them doesn't necessarily works for others. Even in current English translation the layout of some strings is messed up for me using Ubuntu font while I presume you aligned it properly during development.

What I'm about to do is not use tabs as all. Please tell me what you think of this. Too bad pango markup has no basic tables support which would've solved the issue just fine.

Kind regards,
