I've been establishing a 'translation editor' for each translation.
This editor is in charge of ensuring that everything in that edition
is correct (translations, screenshots, design, etc.).  We'll only
publish the translated edition with that editor's approval.

I don't currently have an editor listed for the Dutch translation.  If
you or another translator on your team would like to volunteer for
this role, I'll need their full name, email address, and Launchpad ID.

The latest builds of the translations are available online at

There's no specific deadline for the translated editions. We will
publish them as soon as they've been approved by the translation
