If its only the two strings "childrens" and "animal" I can find them and change them by hand.
The only drawback is that the translations for those strings will be rendered fuzzy by gettext.

Hi Stan,

thank you very much for the quick reply again. Sorry I wasn't very verbose about the patch but there are some other words that seem to be wrong.

childrens -> children

animal makes his cry -> animal makes its cry

appropriated order -> appropriate order ?

For appropriated I guess one can argue that both words work in this context but although I'm not a native speaker the other changes seem correct to me.

I can update the patch and remove the levels -> level changes if you agree.

Im afraid I disagree with the assumption of the spelling errors. I  examined the whole patch but what it pretend to fix is wrong:
-        return _("This activity has %s levels") % 6
+        return _("This activity has %s level") % 6

You would agree that the original string, "This activity has %s levels", is the correct one and the what the patch wants to do is wrong.
Both patches are about these strings in all the games.

There are some spelling mistakes which were reported by Prathibha B in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=690539.

I have rebased his patch which I am attaching to this bug report.
