This CL fix issue 8649 -- RTL: Wrong parenthesis direction is displayed on "About Google Chrome" dialog
(http://crbug.com/8649).

The fix is to adjust the string according to locale,
so that the pure English string in RTL locale is surrounded by left-right-embedding mark for parenthesis to be displayed correctly.
