If you add a tooltip to a button and mark it as "Translatable", you will see in the generated code that it is not coded correctly. For example, the code appears:

this._printButton.TooltipMarkup = "Print a script";

rather than:

this._printButton.TooltipMarkup = global::Mono.Unix.Catalog.GetString("Print a script");

This seems to work for me locally. The code is generated on build, not on property pad changes.

If you happen to see this bug in the future, please file another bug for this.

I have verified that it works in Xamarin Studio 6.2.
