Mistakes in the English localization of Steam

Well, I guess we needed a thread like this one. The English version of Steam has its own mistakes, mostly typos, and I'll be using this thread to point out any mistakes I might find.


First one:

wolfe.Idle4 in Alien Swarm's closecaption file:

<clr:154,205,50>Wolfe: Remeber, you don't hurt em, if you don't hit em.

Not in the strings for translation, but at the top of the statistics page it says:
Quote:
Check this box to drill down to a specific files progress for all languages - reset by choosing a langue above
The bolded doesn't look right.

From the bottom of the translation window/box:

Quote:
GLOSSARY FEATURE (Following English words in above text were found already translatedelsewhere on the translation server.)
A space is missing.

The developer Piranha Bytes is misspelled in the store: "Piranha – Bytes".

PS: Give us Gothic Universe Edition Bundle (Wanna buy Gothic 1 without Gothic 4)

The name of the game Dark Messiah of Might and Magic™ is wrong in the store: Dark Messiah Might and Magic™

(Also: the "go to the forums"-link is outdated)
