Which packages contains the strings present on login screen?

mx flag

I'm asking this because I contribute to translations on Launchpad and I need to test them.

I have translated respective strings for words like 'Password' and 'Not listed?' from the gnome-shell package but they still appear in English on login screen. LC_ and LANG environment variables are set to target language and applied system-wide.

I'm wondering if there's some other program built on top of gnome-shell that has those strings. If gdm3 isn't the one, what is then?

Those links were very helpful in the sense that I didn't know Debian had such an amazing tool! Unfortunately, they didn't help me get closer to solving my issue. Translating those strings from gnome-shell yields no results as they still appear in English. Thank you nonetheless!

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
