Thanks for having an eye on that.

I update the templates on pootle and also already triggered the update
for UI for all languages[1], as there are only two changes (and one
removed string):

* One added context-menu entry "Edit presentation" (slideshow.pot)
"fdo#45233 Allow editing pps/ppsx Autoplay Presentations"

* one changed string Text → Character (UI.pot)
"fdo#68414: SIDEBAR: property's Text named incorrectly"

For help, please trigger the Update from templates yourself.
I'll run the update this weekend

The changes there are mostly changing the attributes of the ahelp
tags, but also new documentation for the date/time related functions.

Thanks again to Andras for noticing & notifying and all translators
for their efforts

[1] still running, so don't panic if you don't see the changed strings
yet when your language-code is in the second half of the alphabet
