OK, I misunderstood... I thought you meant the string "guide data 
program" and that the further information you referred to was "If 
enabled, the guide data program will be run automatically." since "If 
enabled, the guide data program will be run automatically." is an help text.

We could help the translators by putting in translation comments 
(something which I intend to do) but you are right a normal user could 
have an hard time figuring this one out and we are trying to make those 
text understandable.

Thank you and have a nice day!
