So quote are not critical.  Pootle has actually accepted the unit but
warned that your quotes are different.

Which raises another issue.  We build rules for languages to take into
consideration their specific quoting styles. This reduces false positives
on quotes.

If you can let me know for nn what the quoting style is then I can add

For Norwegian bokmål (language code nb) and nynorsk (nn) the recommended
quotes are
At start « (Unicode hex 00AB); at end » (Unicode hex 00BB).

I'll add these thanks.

I do not think we needs the quote in quote characters neither the quotes
in quotes in quotes.
Is it possible to use the <quote> tag and let LibreOffice "translate" it
to the language used?

The quotes check will not prevent you from submitting a unit.  It is simply
a warning to pick up possible issues.  So do what is needed for your
language, don't try make Pootle happy.  Critical errors are different,
those relate will be Placeables and XML related.

I realise we're exposing stylistic checks but showing them in red, I'll see
how we can fix that and am tracking it here
