It is currently not translatable. I don't know where the original  
vector version is, nor how it is generated. I was thinking of turning  
it into a HTML table with 2 columns, the first of translatable  
strings, the second of the small image showing what it is like. Does  
anyone have any better ideas?

It is the translation keys which contain "_tooltip".
