So noexpand_translation is off by default.

I suggest to use the positive version: expand_translation
As that circumvents the double negation.

        If set, the translated result of $"..." is enclosed in double quotes
        instead of single quotes. This might expose the script to the 
        result. For compatibility reasons, this option is enabled by default.
