#translatedNoop is used to mark a string for later translation
using #translated being sent to a variable receiver.

A good example is Partsbin class>>translatedQuads: which sends #translated
to a variable, with the actual string being marked for translation using
#translatedNoop in all the #descriptionForPartsBin methods. This is so the
actual description is stored untranslated, and only translated in the UI,
using the language active at that point in time.
