Yeah, I was a bit surprised, before I remembered the developer was
french. It's not really common to see strings in other language than
english as “source strings”.

Yes. You can look at the sources (apt-get source
xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin), you'll find an en.po file in po/ folder,
which you can edit (using whatever editor, but there are specialised
ones for po stuff, like poedit or other).

If you're interested, you might want to contact the debian-l10n-english
mailing list at http://lists.debian.org/debian-l10n-english/ and/or the
i18n xfce project at http://i18n.xfce.org/
