the meaning of the 4th entry in the list of weights

the weight system combobox has the following definitions in equipment.c:

	{ N_("integrated"), 0 },
	{ N_("belt"), 0 },
	{ N_("ankle"), 0 },
	{ N_("bar"), 0 },
	{ N_("clip-on"), 0 },

i'm focusing mostly on the 4th one which is "bar" and there is a
pressure unit with the same name (homonyms?).
by a fairly distant assumption i think this is some sort of a metal
bar (as a rod, stick).

the problem is that i've translated that in bg_BG to "прът" (rod), but
i'm now seeing that the profile is using this instead of the unit bar:

as in:
#: dive.c:45 equipment.c:825
msgid "bar"
msgstr "прът"

is it possible to have the same msgid but have two different translations.
if not perhaps:
	{ N_("bar"), 0 },
should be renamed to:
	{ N_("metal bar"), 0 },

i'm not sure what is the correct solution here.
