I believe it is a mistake to translate this description.  It is used
by several web sites to decide which content they should serve to the
browser, and adding translated versions are going to cause gnash to
fail on sites that look for specific strings.
Actually, the sites try to retrieve the PLUGIN_DESCRIPTION, and PLUGIN_DESCRIPTION are:

  "Shockwave Flash "FLASH_VERSION".<br>Gnash "VERSION", the GNU SWF Player. \
  Copyright (C) 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 \

  Compatible Shockwave Flash "FLASH_VERSION


  "Shockwave Flash "FLASH_VERSION

Actually, bbc site and youtube retrieve this PLUGIN_DESCRIPTION, like both can't retrieve the version, youtube try with AVM1 support, and BBC, show a message telling us about "download the correct version of Adobe Flash Player", if we change the PLUGIN_DESCRIPTION to

  "Shockwave Flash "FLASH_VERSION

both sites try AVM2, and BBC doesn't show any message...

for now fix this going to be impossible due to AVM2 are unsupported...

Greetings Petter!

Happy hacking,
