Yeah, found it. But remember, if you want to actually translate Ubuntu,
you have to ask to the Translations team to register your team as one of
the Ubuntu Translators Team [1] (I don't see it there). You can do that

Even Mozilla/Firefox is a tough task by itself. Firefox is not even
using the gettext infrastructure, so there is no easy way, that I'm
aware of, of downloading the PO file and testing it with a working

Sure it is, as long as your locale (pms i think) is set up on your
machine and you can actually use it, if I'm not wrong.

Downloading a PO (or even a MO) from Launchpad and testing it is just a
matter of a couple command line instructions. But, again, you need your
locale up and running.

Absolutely! You can do that, and you should do it! For "lost" I mean
that some pieces of the system, if translated only through Launchpad,
will never make it to the final release.
