...and to add some explanation. :)

Changes to the original string has to mark the translated string "fuzzy"
because gettext cannot see if you just fixed a typo or something that changed
the meaning. Furthermore a typo fix can change how a translater understands
and translates the string.

So after a typo fix, all translators have to check the string and "unfuzz"
it for it being shown in the UI again.
