 Calling ''register_post_type'' it is possible to use ''gettext'' to
 translate the labels of the post type.
 However, while the labels do work, the argument ''"description"'' doesn't

 $args['labels'] = array(
         'name' => __('Books', 'text_domain'),
         'singular_name' => __('Book', 'text_domain'),
         'add_new' => 'New Book' );
 $args['description'] = esc_html__("This is a beautiful description for
 this post type, but sadly it doesn't get translated", 'text_domain');
 $args['has_archive'] = 'books';

 I'm rather sure that it's not some mistake of mine, because I checked the
 ''.po'' and ''.mo'' files multiple times and if I copy and paste that
 gettext line of code and I echo it anywhere on my website, it gets
 correctly translated. So it's something about the ''"description"''
