jira.i18n.description to translate description of workflowtransition

Hi there,

currently i am trying to extend the english languagepack with translations of our german workflows. jira.i18n.title works fine for the transitionnames, but trying to define the property jira.i18n.description throws an error so i ended up with this:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-31912

Hence i created a property

<meta name="jira.i18n.title">ran.loesen.title</meta>

and inserted

<meta name="jira.i18n.description">ran.loesen.title</meta>

to the workflow.xml

and

ran.loesen.title=some text

to the JiraWebAction file of the languagepack.

as a result i get the correct translation "some text" for the transitionname but hovering the transitionbutton on the viewissuescreen spawns a tooltip containing the german transitiondescription....

any suggestions?
