It would be nice to have a place to put the "official" glossaries and
guidelines that are to be used for translating Bazaar. Independent of
whether there should be a separate translators-team on launchpad,
there needs to be a place to put this stuff. I propose subpages under

I contributed a bit to the Dutch translation of Bazaar Explorer, but
am fairly certain that the translation is not entirely consistent. A
guide for translating common terms, in bzr but also related projects,
like GUIs, would be welcome here.

Just a note: I think for Dutch it would be appropriate not to
translate a lot of the technical terms.
