[wp-hackers] Why strings aren't translated here?

I solved this by placing another load_plugin_textdomain function in function
that is run on register_activation_hook. That way string is localized on
activation of plugin.

For second string I followed your advice and replaced variable with
function, and string is localized in function.

Thank you for your help.
