Andreas, Thank you for sharing the error.

Hello Yuki-san,

I found that there were one backspace character on your last translation 
contribution on operations-guide and have just removed this character.
Thanks a lot for yor translation contribution, and please refer in 
future not to include such a backspace character :)

The following is to share how I found the cause of the error Andreas 
mentioned with I18n members:

1. Seeing the log file, I found that the error were related with not 
supported character in Zanata like [1] - the error log were generated 
retriving Indonesian po files but I couldn't find not supported 
characters on Indonesian po files.

2. Manually executing zanata-cli command on local environment with "-X" 
option, with file redirction, like
  : $ zanata-cli -B -e pull -X 1> log.txt 2>&1

3. By seeing the log file, I finally figured out that the error were 
generated after executing Zanata REST API for Japanese translation 
resource, not Indonesian resource.

4. I manually downloaded the PO file from Zanata web user interface and 
filtered out \x08 character like the following command:
  : $ grep --color='auto' -P -n '\x08' doc.po

With many thanks,
