Use bin/untranslated_erb to find hardcoded text that could be moved to i18n files.

Just a heads up that we shipped a new tool that can help track down text in the codebase which is still hardcoded and may need to be moved to locale variables.

Run bin/untranslated_erb to output a bunch of instances of text on erb pages which may be good opportunities to contribute to our current internatioinalization effort.

The script will output files which have text that could be moved to variables, for example:

app/views/users/_comments_section.html.erb
