WordPress .po/.mo file is too big (3,312 strings). I know that we can't delete strings but we can reduce the file size by merging simmilar strings. WordPress has too many simmilar string. English developers don't notice this but non-english translators are frustrated by this when they have to translate the same string in 2 or 3 different variations.
I suggest to merge simmilar strings, this way will achive two things:
- Smaller .po/.mo files.
- Easier translation process as there will be less string to translate. I belive 200-300 strings less.
