[QtEI] Translation suggestion

in all the applications I write with Qt I'm using the tr() function. The
advantage is, that it is much shorter to write (and therefore IMHO to read)
and that QtLinguist is automatically showing the right context. QtLinguist
organizes the strings that are translatable by context - typically the class
names. When using tr() this is set automatically, when using
qApp->translate() you have to (but also: can) set the context yourself.
Another consideration is that tr() is only available in classes derived from
QObject - but since normally the strings you want to translate are generated
in Gui-classes this is normally the case.
To sum up: Personally I prefer tr(), but it doesn't really matter what you
