A couple of corrections more, angelo, and we can commit it :-) Venga!!!

When loading the description the ternary is not needed. When the element is 
not found, 'Load' will let the 'text' as is, in this case initialized by 
default as "", so it will be simpler:

BTW, why don't defining description as Text directly?

Other minor issue, when you set the widget text you use the 'tr' function 
(MainWindow.cxx+233). The 'tr' method is used for translating strings. But 
hardcoded strings, it won't translate the description, so please remove this.
Also i guess that the ternary expression there is fully unneeded. Even an 
empty string will have a buffer with a single \0 char so is safe to take it 
to initialize a QString, so, simply:

An the last one, when including Qt headers, prefix the module directory, in 
the case of QTextEdit should be QtGui/QTextEdit.
