Buttons in plugin manager too small for their texts by default

S3 - Major

The buttons in the lower right of the plugin manager are too small for translations by default.
Screenshot for German, similar for French. Haven't tested more.

Reported version 2.2 2.1

2.1 had that problem too, just one button less (the "Reload plugins" one)
And master still have it too.
And it is (potentially) an issue for every language.

Severity S1 - Blocker
Regression No
Workaround No

I would be willing to say it is a problem for most if not all languages, since the translations tend to be more wordy. I checked Afrikaans, Dutch and German, all have this issue.

I have two ideas for suggested fixes
(a) The left-hand pane listing plugin names is less than half used. If you reduce it by 50%, it should have room to spare on the left-hand and allow for buttons large enough to fit many more translation (I can’t say “all translations” since my sample is relatively low)
(b) increase the default / initial dimension of the dialog box to allow enough space (difficult to gauge, I would guess 20%)

Severity S1 - Blocker S3 - Major

Apologies, did not mean to change this to S1 - Blocker. Not sure what happend (my guess: a mouse scroll with focus in the wrong place changed this to a S1 - Blocker). It was on Severity 3. The closest I could find was S3 - Major
