The update of .pot file is a manual process. The module that has been 
changed should be re-exported to fetch the new terms.
The hr_expense module was outdated and I have fixed it in 9.0 (rev 
Transifex will soon (within the day usually) reflect the changes into 
the odoo-9 project.

The changes of source should be avoided in stable version and we try not 
do so. Unfortunately, it happens from time to time and we need to 
re-export the terms.

For version 10, we will export the terms a bit before the release so 
people can start translating and it will allow us to detect errors 
(typo, grammar,..) before the final release. I will make sure to update 
regularly the terms.
