Just trying to format a dictionary label using \n characters and when it is returned via API. The new line characters have been escaped with an extra backslash.
Is there any way I can turn this off for these labels?

The translation is performed in Sitecore with the <getTranslation> pipeline.

Maybe you can add a processor like this:

public class RemoveEscapes
    public void Process(GetTranslationArgs args)
        Assert.ArgumentNotNull(args, "args");
        if (args.HasResult)
            args.Result = args.Result.Replace("\\n", "\n");

And add a patch config:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
                <processor type="Example.Foundation.Pipelines.RemoveEscapes, Example.Foundation"
                           patch:after="processor[@type='Sitecore.Pipelines.GetTranslation.TryGetFromCoreDatabase, Sitecore.Kernel']" />

This is not a tested solution. Maybe give it a try and change the code as required.
