Notification options in Preferences

I think that notification options in user's preferences should be more clearly described (translated). I suppose it's kind of hard for an average user to figure it out what particular option actually means. Even with description behind the question mark I hardly know what the option is about. Is it possible to make it more "description (longer) way", like:

  • Someone leaves me a message on my talk page
  • Someone thanks me for my edit
  • Translations (what exactly is the purpose of this?)
  • Someone mentions me with a link to my user page
  • My mention of someone is not sended (for what reasons?)
  • My mention of someone is sended
  • Page link (what happens here?)
  • Someone reviews a page I've created (what does "review" means?)
  • Someone changes my user rights
  • Someone reverts my edit
  • Someone sends me an e-mail
  • Education Program

So the tooltips next to the short name aren't enough? Clarifying the meaning of the messages in qqq is certainly useful; other than that, this is likely to be a controversial change and you should tell the developers directly.
