The English statement look like this in a text editor:

msgid ""
"Forgot your Red Hat login or password? Find it at\n"
"http://www.redhat.com/software/rhn/\n";
" "

Can you see the last line which contains " "? This means you need to press 
ENTER in kbabel after doing the translation, i.e. a blank line after it. I 
don't have kbabel now to test so tell me if it doesn't work.

In Kbabel go to Edit -> Header. It contains the lang, your name, the date, ...
Go to Settings -> Configure Kbabel to fix any typos once and forever in all 
the coming files.

Surely, you are right! Last name better be translated as ØØÙ ØÙØØØÙØ and not 
ØÙØØÙ ØÙØØÙØ but please don't translate it as ÙÙØ since we need to reserve 
this for nick name which would usualy be asked in the same form or dialog 
box.
