Hello translators,

There are two short phrases on Transifex to translate for mx-thunar-custom-actions.

Thank you!

I assume the 2nd part after the double colon '::' needs to be translated only, right?
name::Install Deb Files
and
desc::Install deb packages and dependencies with apt

If so, I wonder if those custom actions, could have been written
without putting the 1st part (before '::') into the translation strings, at all.

That's right. I have the following comment on the first item in Transifex:
Retain "name::" and "desc::" unchanged in your translation. They are there only to help you see that these items come in pairs - the name of a custom action for the Thunar file manager, followed by its description.
However, it's really hard to make comments stand out on Transifex. The only indication is a numeral beside the "Comments" label in the lower right of the screen, not something that draws attention to itself.

I tried to strike a balance between not giving enough help and being too much in the way. There are a few other Transifex resources (mostly plain-text ones) where I have done something similar, but I'm not satisfied with the approach. Open to suggestions.
