#421: Wrong context in iOS/Mac .strings files

 The concept of context does not exist in the
 iOS/Mac .strings format]

 Currently, when importing a .strings file, the context is filled with the
 same text as the original, which doesn't make much sense and tends to
 confuse translators. My patch now makes the context empty.

 A side-effect to this correction is that existing translations will not
 match their originals anymore because the context has changed.

 Another solution might be to transform the existing comment into the
 context, which is open for discussion.
