Agreed, we should fix. The string in question appears to be:

"...or consider using a transparent Tor proxy like Amnesia LiveCD, torsocks, or TorVM."

I guess we should change it, and also recommend T(A)ILS instead of Amnesia.

The attached patch fixes this. All languages were carefully edited but the zh-CN one I left apart since it did not seem a trivial replacement to do.
