Participating in the translation to zh_CN

Thanks for your reply.

I'm now preparing to submit a part of the translation in advance instead
of finishing the whole translation. But I find a problem.

After I compiled the .po to .mo and then apply to a current installed
gpg (v2.2.10), I noticed some strings were not translated. I tried to
search those stirngs in Poedit which I used for translation, and I
didn't find them. Then I tried to search them in the whole repository to
see whether they were set to use gettext format. Actually, they were in
the .po file. However their lines were started with #~ obsolete marks
which might lead to their unseen to the Poedit.

Then I checked the online git repository and confirmed the situation not
only exists in the copy on my computer. So I would like to know if these
obsolete marks were expected. Are these strings not supposed to be
translated anymore?

Best regards,
Chuhao Li
