Our system-config-printer-kde has had a lot of development on it
compared to what is in KDE 4.2 so there will be translation work needed.

This file doesn't exist upstream, it should be removed from launchpad.

Upstream changed this recently, the correct one is 

plasma-applet-networkmanager should be removed from launchpad.

Upstream translations are at

replacing templates by language code.

I've included the existing ones from upstream in the source:

ca  cs  de  el  en_GB  et  fr  ga  gl  lt  nb  nds  nl  nn  pa  pl  pt
pt_BR  ro  sv  tr  uk  zh_CN

Let me know what other problems you find and I'll look into them.
Note I'm not on the -translators mailing list.

Got specific examples?  The names will have changed in some cases and
Launchpad isn't very good at detecting that.

I'll have to think how to work around that.  Upstream splits the tars
for packagers but it's not split in SVN.  

However don't worry about desktop- po files for jaunty, the patch
which would make them do anything doesn't work :(

Is that a desktop- template?

Code changes happen, Launchpad should learn to work with them.
