Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Translation question

I have a question regarding a string in the main UI:

Re: Custom systems

I have been pondering the system names some more - how about having 2 variables, one with an unlocalizable "native name" and one with a localizable "English" name, similar to unit names in 0AD? Then the user could choose which version to display.
