[OpenStack-I18n] Problems with quotes in Zanata

Hello Frank!

I also had the same trouble as you experienced in murano-dashboard.
I think the main cause comes from strings containing "Couldn't", and 
Zanata recognizes apostrophe as quote,
so both quote start and end need to contain in a string, like: '(text)'.

Since Korean translations were successfully imported from Zanata to 
murano-dashboard repository
: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/378474/ ,
I think Frank's workaround is also fine for German.

By the way, would it be good to change from "Couldn't" to "Could not" in 
to eliminate warning messages in Zanata?

With many thanks,
