Thanks, I will have a look before the end of the week.

As a side note, you should agree that this is not really a straightforward
process. ;)
This is not a big problem for me, but keep in mind that all translators are not
developers. And that Launchpad-translators have to take care of hundred of other

Launchpad makes it easy to edit translations. But, to unsure quality,
translations have to be tested in "real life" in order to spot fuzzy things

In a nutshell, the easier it is for translators to test their work, the better
translations are.

I'm CC-ing the mailing-list because this "reminder" may interest some other devs
