Not really. The translation statistics page is generated every time
afresh from the Wine source code; it doesn't keep state. It would be a
significant amount of work to do that. Probably more than fixing it The
Right Way(TM) aka making Wine use PO files. With PO files there isn't
the need to copy untranslated strings just to not break a resource. And
with that the pedantic mode becomes less useful and we can use other
existing PO based "verify translation" tools, e.g.
So if you would have translated "OK" to "OK" but also some of them to
"Oui" you would get notified about that.
