Comment (by acat):

 With respect to strings that are duplicated in torbutton *.properties and
 *.dtd (see comment
 https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/30464#comment:1), I first
 thought that we could maybe start migrating the duplicated properties to
 Fluent, which should not have the duplication issue since it would all be
 in *.ftl files. However, it's unclear to me how to easily achieve in
 Fluent the same "multi-locale" builds that we decided to do for tor-
 launcher and torbutton integration (all locales are shipped in the build).

 I think a more pragmatic approach for now is to remove the duplicated
 strings from *.properties and have them only in the DTDs. Using DOMParser,
 we can programatically translate strings in privileged JS in a similar way
 as we do now for *.properties files (see `localizeEntity` from
 browser-60.7.0esr-9.0-1#n46). While this is not ideal, I think it would be
 a good enough solution until we decide to migrate to Fluent.
