I've checked the code. These strings are defined in file

#define NC_(Context, String) reinterpret_cast<char const *>(Context
"\004" u8##String)

    Description: API names for Paragraph, Character
    and Text cursor properties

// Format names
#define RID_BORDER_DISTANCE                                
NC_("RID_ATTRIBUTE_NAMES_MAP", "Border Distance")
#define RID_BOTTOM_BORDER                                  
#define RID_BOTTOM_BORDER_DISTANCE                 
NC_("RID_ATTRIBUTE_NAMES_MAP", "Bottom Border Distance")

(217 of them)

Is it sure that a user can see these strings somewhere in a translated form?

If yes, then we need to know structure of these strings (they do not
seem to be sentences) and how are they presented, since many of them
have 'cryptic" form like

Fill Bitmap Rectangle Point
Char Interoperability Grab Bag
Char Weight Complex

But for a random Russian user, who tries to understand why their text

absolutely incomprehensible. A string like "Цвет символа", to the
contrary, would make sense. So - well, on the second thought: no, we
should not avoid translation here
There is already a member in SfxPoolItem "GetPresentation" which is
used in the "organizer" tab of some dialogs to give a human-readable
representation of an SfxPoolItem, I wonder (without looking into it) if
that is anyway useful in this circumstance.
