In several windows, if not all windows, text overflows might occur when the translators could not find a short enough translation for the words that must be placed in that window or button or any other container of text.

The solution to this is making the containers for text autosizing so these issues will never exist anymore instead of making buttons, windows etc larger when a translator requires them to be larger. However, this requires a complete rewrite of the windowing system. The cpp_gui branch is most likely the way to go to solve this issue.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Around r15800. Everything'll be truncated now. In the future too long strings will cause the window to become bigger, but that's the future...
