Thanks to letting us know! Great work!

No there is not a such a list for Launchpad translations. I think that
creating such a list could be a lot of work: Launchapd is a more
broader project than Ubuntu, and has different "programs" that can be
translated. Different software packages with different needs and

I think that a Launchpad translators team should be more a
coordinating team, helping and guiding people that would like to
translate and contribute.

Personally for the Italian team I will put up (have to find the
time...) a wiki page on an external wiki with the list of packages and
the people who are actually translating it, in order to keep track of
the work.

Any other suggestion or idea is absolutely welcome!
