(excerpt from the version on Pootle)

msgid "Language-Name"
msgstr "Nombre-Lenguaje"

#: Scale to apply to font size (2 for twice as large)
msgid "Font-Scale"

#: Directionality of language
msgid "Language-Direction"
msgstr "Dirección-Lenguaje"

#: Use this if you do not want any of the text to be bolded, for legibility
msgid "Suppress-Bold"
msgstr ""

#: Font to use on a Windows system
msgid "Win-Font"
msgstr ""

#: Font to use on a Mac system
msgid "Mac-Font"
msgstr ""

#: Font to use on a Linux system
msgid "Linux-Font"
msgstr ""
