I think you should not convince them to use Rosetta, but to join
KDE/Gnome translation teams. Translations done in KDE/Gnome teams
benefit the whole community, while in Rosetta only Ubuntu.
And with next release of KDE/Gnome you will not benefit of updated
translations from upstream (or your translations will be lost).
The are more arguments. We had a few discussions on kde-i18n-doc list
about these issues. The summary of our findings is here:
