The bulk of changed strings in UI is from the added emoji autocorrect
file (1395 "words").

"emoji autocorrect file", what is it exactly?

The file has pretty good comments, and also lists the target-character
(of course you need a font that contains the character to display it),
other than that you need to imagine by the string-identifier and the
autocorrect sequence.

Do we need to translate
these "words"?

No, if you think it is a waste of time, don't translate.

And for some it doesn't really make sense to translate, for example
the double-exclamation mark character using two !! is a good way to
represent it, or the ellipsis (three-dots-character) using ... for it
is pretty straightforward.

But of course for the other symbols, using a localized trigger might make sense.

Are there any hints about using space character in
emoji names?

Space is OK - some of the English strings already make use of it. For
example "do not litter" or "potable water" signs/triggers.

But just noticed a bug in pootle. It doesn't display the developer
comments for the higher unicode samples...
e.g.  for the cent symbol:
¢ (U+000A2), see

Must be unicode related bug in the DB....
