Here is information for translators.

There are several programs which prompt user to enter password, for
example: PackageKit and system-config-firewall.
In Chinese (Traditional) environment, the strings of authentication
dialogue are all in English, while they should be all translated.

For exmaple: "Authentication is required to install a signed package"
in PackagKit, and "Authentication is required to read and modify
firewall settings"

I go to /usr/share/locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES and use msgunfmt >
XXX.po to check if the translations are packed or not, and all of them
are translated indeed!

I have filed a bug report for this problem:

You guys can check if your language is infected or not and leave comments. :)
