Thanks for the report.  The Spanish translation, es.po, has the same 

However, the bison maintainers do not maintain translations.  We import 
them from the translation project, and we are advised not to adjust 
translations on our side.  See the heading "Let the teams do their work" 
at http://translationproject.org/html/maintainers.html.

With that in mind, I see two possible ways to address this:

1. Report it to the translation project using the appropriate address from 
http://translationproject.org/team/index.html.  Keep in mind that the 
affected translations are rather out of date (see 
http://translationproject.org/domain/bison.html), so I don't know how much 
attention they will receive.

2. Ask the maintainer of the FindBISON script to work around it.
