Comment (by gaspard):

 changeset [77e726d]
 includes a false translation by Mulcyber. The trouble with thanslatewiki
 is that there is no context.

 "Display name" can mean :
  * the action to show a name, like "drink beer"
  * the displayed name, like "blue car"

 This is the old "open door" MUD game translation mistake: do we translate
 by "to open the door" or "opened door" ?

 Is the "Display name" locale used in the 2 different contexts ?
