Comment(by erikos):

 translators] put zero length strings into the translations we might for a
 simple fix just check if there is a conversion specifier in the returned
 string and otherwise just display the string.

 Something like:
 diff --git a/src/sugar/util.py b/src/sugar/util.py
 index b947c0a..d531a2a 100644
 --- a/src/sugar/util.py
 +++ b/src/sugar/util.py
