You may use Pootle's comment box to notify future reviewers.

I can, but will anybody guarantee that comments will survive any future
changes and will be still accessible in, say, 10 years from now?
If not, we would rather not introduce changes that are not word-by-word
translation of English strings.

Btw, Pivot table is build by a selection right? Data source or source
might sound calling a database, which is another option and may
confuse users.

OK, registered databases are often called "Data Sources", so "data
source" may indeed ring a bell that it is about external database. Fair

But I do not believe that the same applies to "Source". After all "data
source" and "source" are different things, in the same way we do not
confuse "Master slide" and "slide" in Impress.

We have translated it in Turkish something like 'Selected Area'
instead of 'selection from'. But Selection is just fine too.
Selection from is not very bad i think.

I do not agree. Simple use-case:
You receive spreadsheet from someone else. It does contain pivot table.
For whatever reason you decide to look at pivot table properties.
It mentions "Selection" that is, in fact, nowhere to be found in the
file (selections are not stored on save, after all).
Only after looking at input box content, it is clear to you that it
accepts range of cells.
But then you think: "why the hell did they label it in a way that does
not make it immediately obvious what you can put into this input box?".

Moreover, selection disappears in a moment you create pivot table. So
it references past, not present.

"Source" directly relates to purpose of input box in question and
should clear these issues.
