It's just that it feels weird to add a context for a specific form of
a specific language
Ex: HKY_NONE "None"  in comctl32.rc:44

converted to HKY_NONE "#msgctxt#feminine agreement#None"

since this agreement doesn't exist in English

Is it the way it should be done? Or am I completely wrong?

I  mean, the "hotkey" translation has feminine form in French, but
could have any other form in another language.
