There is a string "weight" from starmath/uiconfig/smath/ui (#CDcBD).
I am wondering what is this string actually means.

Is that something like font weight? or line weight? or something else?

It is about modifying the width/thickness of the fraction bar (the
horizontal line in "a over b".

I could not translate this word as I do not have enough information. :S

Some general remarks on how to get more information on a string, using
this string as example.
The context for that string is

spacingdialog.ui 4label2 label string.text

So this gives the filename of a glade-based dialog, and also the the
name of it. In this case, as Math doesn't have not much menu-entries,
you can find that dialog by browsing the menus. In this case
It is kind of a weird dialog, as it is split into many subdialogs,
that you have to navigate through by choosing different categories
using the button on the right.

So Format | Spacing → Category "Fraction bar" → there's the weight setting.

Opening the dialog in glade will also give you the context hint about
the Fraction bar.

In pootle it helps to not restrict the filter to "untranslated" to see
other strings surrounding the problematic ones - in this case there
also are hints about Fractions and the Fraction bar - this might also
help to get an idea of what a string is about (probably not in this
specific case, but for other strings that can be ambiguous.
