Hi,

Just to make sure every language team has noticed: the short
descriptions seen eg. in Add/Remove... program lists are nowadays
translatable at:

https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/intrepid/+source/app-install-data-ubuntu/+pots/app-install-data

Installing software is a bit English experience in most languages
still, but now it's possible to get at least the big lists looking
more friendly with relatively low level of effort. Despite the amount
of strings, many program names need not to be translated, and the
actual descriptions are usually quite short.

Additionally, as always there is almost endless work to be done with
the long descriptions, available at the Debian's DDTP project
http://ddtp.debian.net/ddtss/index.cgi/xx - all translations done
there will be merged to Ubuntu too, but not yet from ubuntu's ddtp to
debian.

-Timo
