In that case it is even more important that the testcase describe _all_ the
information for _all_ locales, otherwise there will be a terrible mess with
conflicting feedback (e.g. english testers reporting its fine, french reporter
reporting it is broken, both thinking they are testing the same thing).

Such a testcase _must_ contain the whole behaviour for all locales, e.g.:

1) Open libreoffice
Note: In the low german localization, you are required to mumble "Moin" while
doing that.

Thats also easily amended/clarified in cases were the autotranslation does fail.
Also I dont think we want to hardcode the expected translations in the
testcases -- that makes no sense at all (as that hardcoding is just as likely,
if not more so, to be wrong or outdated as the product).
