Fwd: Oversimplified string in kdevplatform.po

Unfortunately this cannot be changed, because the "makeLink" thing does more
then generating a string. It also needs to know where the link is, so you
cannot move it around in translations.

However, the navigation widget doesn't need to be "linguistically nice" at
any price. Cannot you just do something like "Back: " or "Previous: "?
