Yes, I do see the two alternatives with two radio buttons. My question
is: How to translate both two strings in one entry box? Should I first
translate the first one, then press the second radio button, and then
translate the second one? The warning messages appear when I tried to
do these, so I am not quite sure what is the right thing to do...
