      Description

      XWIKI-7626 introduced the ability to customize the user profile fields also making the display of fields automatic instead of manual.

      In https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-platform/commit/6801750111af50813a2dbf45135f571a342c03a8

      $msg.get('platform.core.profile.about')
      $doc.display('comment')
      

      has been changed with

      $doc.displayPrettyName("${sectionProperty}")
      $doc.display($sectionProperty)
      

      where

      platform.core.profile.about=About
      XWiki.XWikiUsers_comment=Comment
      

      That's why and how the old (more descriptive) 'About' term has been replaced with 'Comment' term which is confusing and overlaps with our 'Comments/Annotations' terminology.

      We need to change it back and we can do so by fixing the pretty name (English translation value) of the "comment" users class property.

      Objective

      Update the existing translation with new value.
