So, the original strings were badly written,

That is just one of myriad reasons why treating en_US, en_DE, en_UK, or
any variant thereof as the "source" language is, at best, translation

So, what translators are supposed to translate then?

But that was not my point, I was complaining about people who think that
consistency, following linguistic rules and proper typography are usless
cosmetics. Regardless of how localisation will be done or what language is
the source there always will be chsnges of this kind that localisations
need to follow, failure to do so would mean that we have different UX
between localised and unlocalised versions of LibreOffice, which is
unacceptable but many people here seems to be advocating for that.
