See for example player1Name entry in 
It's a string, but you can do the same for a stringlist.

Note that this is not "extraction", it's extraction and returned as a 
translated string, not sure if what calls getProfilesList in your case always 
wants a translated string or you also need them in non translated form.

You also need to process with xgettext the kcfg file then
