而且有这个错误的其实应该都是 使用中文翻译的。

one of the translation items  in the zh_CN.po file was wrong. 

the raw value is :msgid "Invoices & Refunds"

the translation is: msgstr "发票&a mp;退款"

the translator split '&' to '&a mp;'. that's the reason the error happens!

Thanks to everyone's help, I have found the cause of the problem. It is due to the errors I have caused by loading the Chinese language. I have to change my English language. It is a normal job. I think this zh_CN.po file has a problem.
