I suppose Fedora deployed GNOME without changing any string (since it
would make all locales display an incorrect string) so this string
should be on GNOME. You can browse the GNOME translations from Most likely you
will find it on desktop branch.

You should file a bug on Fedora bugzilla. I haven't done it yet, but
maybe other people on this list may help you.

Hope this help,

Hackers (and creative people in general) should never be bored or
have to drudge at stupid repetitive work, because when this
happens it means they aren't doing what only they can do —
solve new problems.
