Re: Pre-Beta Translations Sprint


Before we ask for any translation at all we should review existing English
text because not all developers are native English speakers and/or can
express themselves clear enough for end users. Then we should announce a
string freeze.

I know I keep going on about this, but a custom translation team is a bad
idea and the sooner we disband it and swap for the Launchpad team, the
better. Everybody who's interested in reviewing elementary translations
specifically should apply for membership in the Launchpad translators team
for their language.
