You are right. For some languages may be better use some like:

wxString::Printf(
  _("%s %s"), 
  (wxString)wxGetTranslation(obj->GetTypeName()), 
  obj->GetFullIdentifier()
)

But it solves only little part of more bigger problem which reported
here: http://code.pgadmin.org/trac/ticket/4

It has two solutions (Let's have real example "Cannot drop system %s %
s"):

--- 1. To leave it in translators 

Right czech translation is "Nelze odstranit systémovou tabulku XXX"
(accusative case tabulkU). But it is substituted "Nelze odstranit
systemovou tabulka XXX" (Nominative case tabulkA).

I circumvent problem by other formulation in translation: "Nelze
odstranit systémový objekt: tabulka XXX" (= "Cannot drop system object:
%s %s").

Negative: It isn't universal solution. It's differnt laguage by
language.

--- 2. To split it to individual objekts

"Cannot drop system table %s"
"Cannot drop system function %s"
"Cannot drop system sequence %s"
...

Negative: There is much combinations which would increase quantities of
code.
