The catalog search widget tooltips are not translated. The server-side xml did not contain the capability of translation for these tooltips (the wrapper ${gs.getMessage('...')} around the string), but only the English string itself.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Navigate to System Definition > Plugins.
  2. Select I18N: German Translations.
  3. Select Activate/Upgrade.
  4. After the plugin is enabled, change the language to German.
  5. Navigate to Self-Service > Service Catalog.
  6. Hover over the magnifying glass and drop-down arrow.
    Note that the English translation is shown and not translated for "Search."
