The problem is probably tied to a misunderstanding in the ast translation at https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp/dev/ast/default?filters%5Bstatus%5D=either&filters%5Boriginal_id%5D=231191&sort%5Bby%5D=translation_date_added&sort%5Bhow%5D=asc

and

’tain’t,’twere,’twas,’tis,’twill,’til,’bout,’nuff,’round,’cause,’em
Context: Comma-separated list of replacement words in your language

WordPress will search for matches against words in the first list and replace them with the corresponding position from the second list. Unfortunately, the first list has been merely translated (and the second list has been left untranslated...

Hi @dangerouspiper, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

As noted above, it's an issue with a particular translation, not with WordPress core.

Per https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/?locale=ast, you're a GTE for Asturian. Could you approve @tobifjellner's translation of that string?
