I told you already what you are doing wrong in that place: you are creating 
the about data before the application instance, and that's exactly what 
kaboutdata is telling you above. I know this used to be the way to do it in 
qt4/kdelibs4, but it is not the way to do it in qt5/kf5. Please take a look at 
any KF5-based application, let's say dolphin.
(and check out the number of I18N_NOOP in that file: none).

If your comment was only about About->kwave, then look for i18n("").
If you don't find it, then put a breakpoint in the ki18n warning or in 
qt_message_output. But since this is related to KAboutData, I recommend fixing 
main.cpp before spending time investigating the About->kwave issue.
