The required translations are in an XML file.  Yelp isn't pulling them
from the mo / po file, they just live there.  Instead, yelp parses the
XML file at runtime (don't get me started).  I dunno how this is handled
in language packs, but I suspect the XML file needs to be rebuilt with
all the translations present.

The XML file in question is /usr/share/yelp/toc.xml
If you open it, you'll notice none of the front page stuff is
translated, but everything else is (<title> elements).

Dunno what needs doing, but it should be the same as any other
(e.g.) .desktop file update.

Hope this helps
Don
