Sadly, no.

The code could conceivably be changed to separate
the menu structure and their translated names,
but that is assuming that the context
(i.e. the menu page a button appears in)
isn't important in the translated string.

1) I'm not a linguist, but isn't that the nature of translation?
Inserting nuance, peer review, checking and double-checking, et c.

2) Note that it is more than just those three - some of the items in
mythtv/themes/defaultmenu/media_settings.xml are also duplicated in
