You may know about the Urdu translation of XFCE by Muhammad Ali Makki. You can see here the details.

Subject: [Ubuntu Urdu] Translating Xubuntu in Urdu


recently we have developed a small team and decided to work on Xubuntu to localize it in Urdu language. By this message we seek assistance from fellow translators to help us identify the translation templates on launchpad that we need to translate in order to get a completely translated Urdu version after a default Xubuntu installation. Secondly, we need translators to join us so that we can get Jaunty translated as soon as we can. translators can contact me directly. 

We tried to figure out the translation templates but we can not understand which templates we should translate for Xubuntu. While at launchpad, I realized that it is difficult to search for translation packages inside a particular language group. One can search packages in Jaunty but not all packages there have translation templates we are just totally clueless. 

We would appreciate if some one can help us by either sending us the all pot files needed to be translated for Xubuntu in zip format or helping us maintain a list of translation templates that need to be translated. We have figured out a few of the translation templates and are working on them. But we want to translate it as completely as we possibly can.  So that we could later work on a remastered version of Xubuntu as the first complete Urdu Operating system, that is light weight, free, and has fantastic Urdu read write support.
