When importing the fr.po translation for this module, I get:
2 translation strings were skipped because they contain disallowed HTML.
The issue seems similar to the one there:
The two translatable strings used by fivestart that look like HTML tags are '' and ''. I *think* a good solution would be to use '<none>' instead, but maybe someone more knowledgeable on this will know better.
