In the data manager the user sees strings which may be clear for a developer,
but not for the average user.Since strings are visible and a pain to change
once the application is translated and there are screenshots and screencasts
all around the web, we should try to improve them now.
I suggest the following changes:
- instead of repeating "Create" everywhere and having some string ends
truncated when the dialog has a reduced width, we could put a QLabel at the top
above the QToolbox saying something like "Click to:"
- "Create Primitive" -> "Read new data"
- "Create Data Object" -> "Create derived object"
- "Create Plugin" -> "Use a plugin"
- "Create Fit" -> "Fit a curve"
- "Create Filter" -> Filter a curve"

Note: if we go for the menu reorganization suggested in bug #249799, then
obviously the above needs to be considered in menu names.

Reproducible: Always
